"Beguiling and wildly inventive...A funny and wholly original love story that weds the everyday to the supernatural."--"Chicago Tribune
George Mahoney suspects he is getting a little stale at redesigning refrigerators, after fourteen years in the same job. With the arrival of his new office mate, Niagara Spense, George is forced to reevaluate everything in his life from love and family, to science itself. Despite his allegiance to facts and the physical world, George becomes obsessed by the six-foot-tall Niagara, who reveals that she is on a quest for electrical evidence of life after death-"audible fossils," she calls them. As Niagara Spense seeks the dead, and George seeks her, everything suddenly becomes possible in a novel that makes engineering funny, and mixes the world of icemakers and butter softeners with the miraculous.
"Riveting ...Zuravleff has created some of the most wonderfully realized characters in current fiction."--"Dallas Morning News
"Read this book! Zuravleff fashions small moments of comic wonder in this novel of family and FM frequencies, magic and flirting, metaphysics and doughnuts."--"San Diego Tribune
"Engaging...Zuravleff's insightful yet gentle rendering of the absurd [allows] readers to connect fully with her quirky and endearing characters."--"The New York Times Book Review
"Page after page, the descriptions of the novel are laugh-out-loud funny. Smart and refreshingly tender...with a stylish ebullience reminiscent of Anne Tyler."--"News & Observer (Raleigh)
