Staff Reviews


Abraham Lincoln seeks his departed son in a graveyard purgatory pulsating with comic, tragic, and thwarted life. Thru language inventive and freeing, Saunders lifts his lost souls to the cusp of divinity, and gives the reader a taste of the wild enchantment of literature.

— Mike Hare

Echoes of Thornton Wilder's Our Town and Edgar Lee Masters' Spoon River Anthology resound through this beautifully written and emotionally powerful story about spirits in the graveyard where Abraham Lincoln's son, Willie, was laid to rest. The restless inhabitants observe in awe as the bereaved President visits his child. Fiercely original and almost hypnotic in its ability to cast a spell over the reader that is both mournful and joyous.

— Alden Graves
