From the author of Boy, Snow, Bird comes a collection of vaguely interconnected short stories, all of which have in common the theme of keys, literal and metaphorical. As doors, secrets, books, and boxes are unlocked, the reader discovers more to explore. Main characters in one story may get mentioned briefly in another story, tempting the reader to begin the book again in an effort to connect the scattered pieces of the puzzle.
