He’s pushing forty. He drinks. He smokes. He eats snack cakes for breakfast. And he’s the sole guardian of his orphaned nephew, Spencer.
But Spencer isn’t just any five-year-old. He’s a child prodigy, and living together requires compromises that neither uncle nor nephew are prepared to make.
This short story, from the author of 'Fender' and 'The Fifteenth of June', is teeming with raunch and dark humor, mocking the old adage that blood is thicker than water.
'A Book With No Pictures' also introduces readers to children’s librarian, Afton Morrison, the subject of an upcoming thriller series, also set in the fictional town of Wakefield.
