About the Book

Museum of Stones reveals a possessive/obsessive world of a love that must be released. An exceptional child collects too many rocks, invents a garbage recycler that runs amok, does not “play well.” His mother takes their relationship to extremes, threatening her sanity and health, a wrenching yet often funny account.

About the Book

The unnamed narrator in Museum of Stones carries the name of every mother who has stared into the face of her newborn, having no idea of what is about to unfold.
