THE AMERICAN CIVIL WAR RAGES WHILE PRESIDENT LINCOLN S BELOVED ELEVEN-YEAR-OLD SON LIES GRAVELY ILL. IN A MATTER OF DAYS, WILLIE DIES AND IS LAID TO REST IN A GEORGETOWN CEMETERY. NEWSPAPERS REPORT THAT A GRIEF-STRICKEN LINCOLN RETURNS TO THE CRYPT SEVERAL TIMES ALONE TO HOLD HIS BOY S BODY. FROM THIS SEED OF HISTORICAL TRUTH, GEORGE SAUNDERS SPINS AN UNFORGETTABLE STORY OF FAMILIAL LOVE AND LOSS THAT BREAKS FREE OF REALISM, ENTERING A THRILLING, SUPERNATURAL DOMAIN BOTH HILARIOUS AND TERRIFYING.
