The Amazing Race

Lost and Found by Carolyn Parkhurst

Reviewed by Ron Charles
Washington Post Book World

"In Carolyn Parkhurst's debut novel, The Dogs of Babel, a widower tries to teach his dog to speak in hopes of hearing how his wife died. That irresistibly bizarre premise helped the unknown Washington author break through the publicity din and secure all kinds of enthusiastic attention in 2003. Her new novel, Lost and Found, has an equally risky plot, but this time the danger involves banality rather than freakishness." Read the entire Washington Post Book World review.
