Former academic Arthur Opp weighs 550 pounds and hasn't left his rambling Brooklyn home in a decade. Twenty miles away, in Yonkers, seventeen-year-old Kel Keller navigates life as the poor kid in a rich school and pins his hopes on what seems like a promising baseball career'¬ ;if he can untangle himself from his family drama. The link between this unlikely pair is Kel'¬"s mother, Charlene, a former student of Arthur'¬"s. After nearly two decades of silence, it is Charlene'¬"s unexpected phone call to Arthur'¬ ;a plea for help'¬ ;that jostles them into action. Through Arthur and Kel'¬"s own quirky and lovable voices, Heft tells the winning story of two improbable heroes whose sudden connection transforms both their lives. Like Elizabeth McCracken'¬"s The Giant'¬"s House, Heft is a novel about love and family found in the most unexpected places.
