In his mesmerizing and haunting debut novel, John Wray tells the story of Henry DeTamble, a man haunted by his past. For years, Henry has been living in a cabin in the woods, trying to rebuild his life after a devastating accident. But the peace and solitude of the woods are shattered when he discovers a young girl lying injured in the undergrowth. Intrigued, Henry brings her home and nurses her back to health. Gradually, he realizes that the girl is not just any stranger--she is his daughter, lost to him years ago in a tragic accident. As he begins to reconnect with her, Henry begins to piece together the story of his past and the secrets he has been keeping. As he uncovers the truth, Henry is forced to confront the demons that have haunted him for years. With haunting, evocative prose, The Right Hand of Sleep is a beautifully written and emotionally powerful story of loss and redemption.; 8vo; Signed by Author.
