Summary

The town of New Eden, peopled with hereditary oddities, has arrived at its last days. As two near-centenarian citizens prepare for their annual birthday tea, a third vows to interrupt the proceedings with a bold declaration. The Remnants cartwheels rambunctiously through the lives of wood-splitters, garment-menders, and chervil farmers, while exposing an electrical undercurrent of secrets, taboos, and unfulfilled longings. With his signature wit and wordplay, Robert Hill delivers a bittersweet gut-buster of an elegy to the collective memory of a community.

He is a recipient of a Literary Arts Walt Morey Fellowship, a Breadloaf Writers Conference Fellowship, and his first novel, When All Is Said and Done (Graywolf, 2006), was shortlisted for the Ken Kesey Award for Fiction.
