About the book:
Once a year, on All Souls Day, the dead may return; Solar Bones tells the story of one such visit. Wry and poignant, Solar Bones is an intimate portrayal of one family, capturing how careless decisions ripple out into waves, and how our morals are challenged in small ways every day.
