Inhaltsangabe: The year is 1950 and, at 26, librarian Peggy Cort feels as though love and life have passed her by. Until the day James Carlson Sweatt, the "over-tall" 11-year-old who's the talk of the town, walks into the library and changes her life forever. A 1996 "New York Times" Notable Book.
Rezension: An unlikely love story about a lonely spinster librarian and a younger man, forced into loneliness because of his monstrous size. Peggy Cort, the reclusive librarian in a small Cape Cod town falls for a boy 14 years her junior -- one who grows to be 8 feet 7 inches and 415 pounds. Though initially attracted out of sympathy, Peggy soon finds she has much in common with this sensitive, albeit enormous man. A romance ensues, but the unique connectedness they share -- something neither has ever felt before -- is cruelly interrupted by tragedy.
