ITEM#: 14176472When fourteen-year-old Vincent Bailey stumbles upon the body of Percy Harding, Goliath's most important citizen, near the railroad tracks one autumn afternoon, the tragic death seems literally unbelievable: how could it have been a suicide? Only Harding's secretary, Rosamond, might have had a glimmer, but that glimmer just tugs at her, urges her to find out more. Harding isn't the first person to leave Rosamond: everybody does, from her husband Hatley, who walked out on her years ago; to her complicated daughter Agnes, whose girlhood bedroom was papered with the maps of the places she wanted to escape to. Brought to life by a cast of characters as varied and rich as in any fictionfrom Clyde Winston, the town's police chief, to Goliath's self-taught preacher Ray to Percy Harding's unmoored widow LelaGoliath's appeal is as memorable as Elizabeth Strout's Crosby, Maine or Richard Russo's Empire Falls.
