Terrace Story terrace story
by Hilary Leichter

Available as: print book

An astonishing unclassifiable novel that creates an entire world and within that world is a small apartment in a crowded city.  Like something out of Narnia, through a closet a terrace is discovered but its only reachable when one particular friend stops by to visit. A novel unlike anything you have read before, unless you have read Hilary Leichter’s prior novel Temporary, and it is “an astounding meditation on loss, a reverie about extinction, and a map for where to go next.”
