Paul Harding’s Pulitzer Prize winning debut novel tells the story of a man on his deathbed remembering both his life and his father’s. The beauty, fragility, and tragedy of life are expertly commented upon as George Crosby recollects losing his father at an early age, and reunites with him through memories, with the ongoing metaphor of clock repair setting the stage for the both the memories and the impending death.

Paul Harding is a former alternative rock drummer turned author, who learned about clockmaking from his own grandfather. Religion and transcendentalism are common themes in his novels, and he considers himself a modern New England Transcendentalist.
