Gracefully and powerfully written and beautifully designed, Meredith Fuller's Quarry is truly a volume made for lovers of books: a compelling tale complemented by dream-images that don't so much illustrate the story as bring it to startling life. Everything one could want in a novel.--Pinckney Benedict, author of Miracle Boy and Other Stories 

From Amazon: In Quincy, Massachusetts, a young girl of Finnish and Irish descent loses her father under traumatic circumstances, and sets out to learn what happened to him Naïve, intuitive, implacable, Rose learns to read landscapes of the natural world and the human heart. She confronts history and its suppression. But it will take personal risk and imaginative reach to understand that she is part of a much larger story of immigrants to America. With edgy ordinariness, Fuller 's narrative gift describes secrets and tragedies, slowly revealing the mythic underbelly of every good story. Resurrecting a lost 19th century tradition, Anderson has designed a stunningly illustrated novel for adult readers of our time.
