Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

With clarity, sensitivity, and striking authenticity, Eliza Minot adeptly captures the voice of a vibrant, intelligent child swept into a sea of sorrow and confusion in The Tiny One.

Via Mahoney Revere is eight years old when her mother is killed in a car accident. Confused by anguish, bewildered by her mother's absence, and mystified by the notion of death itself, Via retells the day of her mother's death in minute detail, trying to discern the crack in the world through which her mother must have slipped. She takes us through the seemingly ordinary moments of her day, from a cold-cereal breakfast to math class, when she is called to the principal's office to hear the news. Every small event of the tragic day calls up earlier memories from Via's young life, resulting in a beautifully patterned portrait of a comfortable childhood guarded by a warm and loving mother. Via attempts to grasp "how something so big could fit into such a little thing as a day."

Review:

"A remarkable work of recollection and imagination." The Boston Globe

Review:

"A sensitive, sensuous first novel...a bright-dark rendering of a young girl's great childhood loss, told with quiet power and deep feeling." Elle

Review:

"Eliza Minot has a sharp eye, a great ear and a terrific memory. She has a sorceress's ability to perceive the emotional spirits trapped in nature. She has a wild, unstrung, lyrical gift. Reading The Tiny One is like going under hypnosis to retrieve repressed memories — not of abuse, but of everything we'd like to remember and can't." Jeffrey Eugenides, New York Times Book Review
