Spilling Clarence
What if you could suddenly remember everything that ever happened in your life? Would it be a blessing -- or a curse? This is the fate of the residents of the town of Clarence, Minnesota, who fall under the spell of a strange and powerful drug that unlocks their memories. The past comes flooding back without the buffer of time, and the townspeople, young and old, find themselves awash in their own reminiscences-- of love and death, of war and childhood, of family theyve lost and sins theyve committed. Beautifully rendered with a light comic touch, this bittersweet novel is a beguiling exploration of our relationship with our histories, the seductive pull of regret, the unreliability of memory, and the bliss of forgetting.
