From the Publisher:
Thomas Abbey, a schoolteacher and son of a film star, lives with uncertainty and indecision as he tries to forge relationship in the real world. 20,000 first printing. printing.Schoolteacher Thomas Abbey, unsure son of a film star, doesn't know who he is or what he wants - in life, in love, or in his relationship with the strange and intense Saxony Gardner. What he knows is that in his whole life nothing has touched him so deeply as the novels of Marshall France, a reclusive author of fabulous children's tales who died at forty-four.|Now Thomas and Saxony have come to France's hometown, the dreamy Midwestern town of Galen, Missouri, to write France's biography. Warned in advance that France's family may oppose them, they're surprised to find France's daughter warmly welcoming instead. But slowly they begin to see that something fantastic and horrible is happening. The magic of Marshall France has extended far beyond the printed page...leaving them with a terrifying task to undertake.
Annotation:
Along with his somewhat odd girlfriend, a teacher travels to a small Missouri town with the intention of writing a biography of his favorite author, a deceased children's writer named Marshall France. As his research commences, he begins to see evidence that France's writing has bled off of the printed page and onto the "real" world. Originally published in 1980, this was Carroll's debut novel, and it introduces one of the overriding themes of his early works: that of the ultimate fluidity between the actual and the fictional.
