"flirts with fantasy and magic realism"

Widower Colton Kemp trains his children to become living sculptures in his window-dressings; his mute competitor, known only as The Carpenter, is revealed to have a turbulent past involving shipwreck and a Crusoe-like existence on a desert island. Cliff flirts with fantasy and magic realism in an odd but rewarding novel.
