This entertaining, award-winning novel about love, electricity, and life after death tells the story of George Mahoney, a refrigerator designer gone stale, and his new office mate, Niagara Spense. The six-foot-tall Niagara, who sees electricity as a mysterious animating force, shakes the very foundations of George's belief in facts and the physical world. And that's before she reveals that she is on an incredible quest for electrical evidence of life after death - "audible fossils" she calls them. As Niagara Spense seeks the dead, and George seeks her, everything suddenly becomes possible in a novel that makes engineering funny, and mixes the world of icemakers and butter softeners with the miraculous.
What did you like best about this story?
Every sentence rich, clever, exact... Zuravleff's story and Tamblyn's sure voice drew me in with the first line and didn't let go.
