Summary (From the publisher):

Emmett has a wife and two children, a cat, and a duck, and he wants to know what life is about. Every day he gets up before dawn, makes a cup of coffee in the dark, lights a fire with one wooden match, and thinks.

What Emmett thinks about is the subject of this wise and closely observed novel, which covers vast distances while moving no further than Emmettís hearth and home. Nicholson Bakerís extraordinary ability to describe and celebrate life in all its rich ordinariness has never been so beautifully achieved.
