The inhabited world
David Long
Adult Fiction LONG

Comments  Summary  Excerpt  Reviews

Summary: The eighth book from an award-winning and acclaimed author, The Inhabited World is Long's most gripping and profound work. Evan Molloy -- a son, husband, and stepfather -- fatally shot himself but doesn't know why. He is stuck in a state of purgatory in the house in Washington State where he lived and died. The woman who now lives there, Maureen Keniston, is in her late thirties and is trying to restart her life after breaking off a long affair with a married man. The novel deftly moves back and forth between the story of Evan's troubled life and Maureen's efforts to emerge from her own purgatory. In watching Maureen's struggles and ultimate triumph, Evan comes to see his own life and death in a completely new way. Part psychological drama, part absorbing mystery, The Inhabited World paints a stirring portrait of a man caught between this world and the next and a woman who unwittingly offers him a sort of redemption he never could have predicted.
