Publisher's Summary

The daily rhythm of a veterinarian's family in rural New England is shaken when a hunting accident leaves their eldest son in a coma. With the lives of his loved ones unhinged, the veterinarian struggles to maintain stability while searching for the man responsible.

But in the midst of his great trial an unexpected visitor arrives, requesting a favor that will have profound consequences-testing a loving father's patience, humor, and resolve, and forcing husband and wife to come to terms with what "family" truly means.

The Call is a gift from one of the most talented and extraordinary voices in contemporary fiction - a unique and heartfelt portrait of a family, poignant and rich in humor and imagination.

What the Critics Say

"A triumph of quiet humor and understated beauty. . . . Murphy's subtle, wry wit and an appealing sense for the surreal leaven moments of anger and bleakness, and elevate moments of kindness, whimsy, and grace." (Publishers Weekly)

    "I Became Very Attached"

    Really surprised that this book/performance didn't get better reviews. I loved it. It was real - the people were real. I whisper-synced this book, and William Dufris added a lot to my enjoyment. Bring on some more - from both the author and the narrator.
