About This Book
The married couple in this novel pull off a remarkable achievement: They
purchase a three-story house with oodles of bedrooms, and, on a middle-class
income, in the '70s, fill it to the brim with happy children and visiting
relatives. Their holiday gatherings are sumptuous celebrations of life and
togetherness. And then the fifth child arrives. He's just a child--he's not
supernatural. But is he really human? This is an elegantly written tale that the
New York Times called "a horror story of maternity and the nightmare of social
collapse . . . a moral fable of the genre that includes Mary Shelley's
Frankenstein and George Orwell's 1984."
