Adult Fiction URSU
Summary: What if you could suddenly remember everything that ever happened in your life Would it be a blessing -- or a curse The answer is found in Spilling Clarence, a satisfying, witty, romantic, and tender novel. In the fictional town of Clarence, Minnesota, a breakroom microwave sparks a smoky fire at the pharmaceutical factory and triggers a massive chemical spill. Panic-stricken and paralyzed, the townspeople wait until the all-clear signal to assure them everythings back to normal. Except that it isnt. Over the coming days, the citizens of Clarence fall under the spell of a strange and powerful drug that unlocks their memories. They become trapped by 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 first novel is about more than the sum of its beguiling parts. Its about the need to remember, and about the bliss of forgetting. A universe peopled by exquisitely drawn characters, Spilling Clarence is a funny, moving story with a truly original premise that introduces the impressive talents of an exciting new writer.
