9780099558729: Heft

Former academic Arthur Opp weighs 550 pounds and hasn't left his rambling Brooklyn home in a decade. Twenty miles away, in Yonkers, seventeen-year-old Kel Keller navigates life as the poor kid in a rich school and pins his hopes on what seems like a promising sporting career - if he can untangle himself from his family drama. The link between this unlikely pair is Kel's mother, Charlene, a former student of Arthur's. After nearly two decades of silence, it is Charlene's unexpected phone call to Arthur - a plea for help - that jostles them into action.

Product Description:

Title: Heft <>Binding: Paperback <>Author: Liz Moore <>Publisher: Windmill Books

Review:

"A stunningly sad and heroically hopeful tale ... This is a beautiful novel about relationships of the most makeshift kind." ( O, The Oprah Magazine)

" Full of surprises and love and healing, Heft is the most unsentimental sentimental journey you will read this year." ( The Times)

" Heft is written with a dry wit and the characters are hugely likeable … It’s moving and tragic too." ( Daily Mail)

" Nuanced and poignant… each of the three acutely written principals of Moore’s second novel hooks the reader in a heartbeat. Heft is an understated yet intensely emotional work." ( Financial Times)

"

A gentle fiction, as big-hearted as it’s star is heavy.

" ( Vogue)
