The prize-winning author of Versailles tells the story of a small New England village unsettled by a young girl's unearthly gift. In Varennes, a town near the Canadian border, three girls come across the body of a dead man on the local lake's beach. Two of them run to get help, but twelve-year-old Mees Kipp stays with the body and somehow, inexplicably, brings it back to life. Her mysterious gift is at the center of this haunting and transcendent novel.

Annotation:
Various people, animals, and plants in Varennes, Vermont, a tiny town on the Canadian border on the verge of a profound spiritual reawakening, narrate this work of magical realism, including a 12-year-old who raises the dead, a feisty 92-year-old nursing home resident, her randy son, a lonely environmental activist, a dog, and a patch of lichen.

Praise

Kirkus Reviews
"A delightful, surprise-filled narrative: Davis's best yet." (starred review) 09/15/2005

Entertainment Weekly
"There's excitement, then, in hanging on to Davis' newest novel for dear life, exulting in the quiet glow of her virtuosity--and sometimes even laughing out loud at the precision of her descriptions....Although this startling book is not at all like Marilynne Robinson's GILEAD, it is touched by the same love of life and gift of grace. Grade: A." - Lisa Schwarzbaum 01/20/2006

Salon
"A kind of wry humor is the one constant in THE THIN PLACE, but with exquisite skill Davis tailors every observation to the character making it." - Laura Miller 01/26/2006

New Yorker
"[B]rilliant, peculiar....Davis writes hallucinatory, literate prose." 02/06/2006

"THE THIN PLACE...is that rare, brave, and original thing: an honest and energetic glimpse into an author's head....[Davis] has done something great here, something heathen, anarchic, democratic. She has given everyone and every thing a voice: animals, plants, children, coma patients, even the Earth itself." - Lucy Ellmann 02/05/2006
