A genre-defying speculative thriller which will leave you breathless

By day, young mother Molly is a paleobotanist working at a fossil quarry where she sometimes uncovers unearthly artifacts that defy understanding.

By night, she cares for her children–four-year-old Viv and one-year-old Ben–while her musician husband is away on tour.

She's frazzled, sleep-deprived, and it seems the edges of her reality blur more each day.

When Molly hears an intruder in her home, she has no idea this individual will force her to question everything she's ever known about her life, her loves, and her very identity…“A profound meditation on the nature of reality…An extraordinary and dazzlingly original work from one of our most gifted and interesting writers.”—EMILY ST.

JOHN MANDEL"Phillips is, as always, doing something at once wildly her own and utterly primal.

Maybe it doesn't surprise me that the strangest book I've read about motherhood is also the best, but it does thrill me."—REBECCA MAKKAI
