In his fifth novel, celebrated writer Scott Bradfield delivers an arresting and unsentimental childhood voice.
Salome Jensen is three years old when she is taken from her home by the man who fixes the hot water heater. As Sal drifts through Laundromats and other people's homes, she develops a perspective of the world and an understanding of its people more meaningful than the most erudite observer could muster.
The People Who Watched Her Pass By is often hilarious as well as startling, and a poignant new contribution to the body of literature of a respected prose craftsman.
