A spellbinding novel that will resonate with readers of Mark Haddon, Louise Erdrich, and John Irving, Perfect tells the story of a young boy who is thrown into the murky, difficult realities of the adult world with far-reaching consequences. Byron Hemmings wakes to a morning that looks like any other: his school uniform draped over his wooden desk chair, his sister arguing over the breakfast cereal, the click of his mother´s heels as she crosses the kitchen. But when the three of them leave home, driving into a dense summer fog, the morning takes an unmistakable turn. In one terrible moment, something happens, something completely unexpected and at odds with life as Byron understands it. While his mother seems not to have noticed, eleven-year-old Byron understands that from now on nothing can be the same. What happened and who is to blame? Over the days and weeks that follow, Byron´s perfect world is shattered. Unable to trust his parents, he confides in his best friend, James, and together they concoct a plan. . . . As she did in her debut, The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry, Rachel Joyce has imagined bewitching characters who find their ordinary lives unexpectedly thrown into chaos, who learn that there are times when children must become parents to their parents, and who discover that in confronting the hard truths about their pasts, they will forge unexpected relationships that have profound and surprising impacts. Brimming with love, forgiveness, and redemption, Perfect will cement Rachel Joyce´s reputation as one of fiction´s brightest talents. Praise for Perfect ´´Touching, eccentric . . . Joyce does an inviting job of setting up these mysterious circumstances, and of drawing Byron´s magical closeness with Diana.´´-Janet Maslin, The New York Times ´´Haunting . . . compelling.´´-Minneapolis Star Tribune ´´[Joyce] triumphantly returns with Perfect. . . . As Joyce probes the souls of Diana, Byron and Jim, she reveals-slowly and deliberately, as if peeling back a delicate onion skin-the connection between the two stories, creating a poignant, searching tale.´´-O: The Oprah Magazine ´´Perfect touches on class, mental illness, and the ways a psyche is formed or broken. It has the tenor of a horror film, and yet at the end, in some kind of contortionist trick, the narrative unfolds into an unexpected burst of redemption. [Verdict:] Buy It.´´-New York ´´Joyce´s dark, quiet follow-up to her successful debut, The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry, could easily become a book club favorite. . . . Perfect is the kind of book that blossoms under thoughtful examination, its slow tendencies redeemed by moments of loveliness and insight. However sad, Joyce´s messages-about the limitations of time and control, the failures of adults and the fears of children, and our responsibility for our own imprisonment and freedom-have a gentle ring of truth to them.´´-The Washington Post ´´There is a poignancy to Joyce´s narrative that makes for her most memorable writing.´´-NPR´s All Things Considered

The Pencil Perfect is the tangible tale of the pencil: a utensil that crafts its own story as humans use its sharpened point to write their own. Intimate and individual, pencil and paper are a personal touch in a digital age, for this small, everyday object brings us back to the tangible and the traditional. The Pencil Perfect takes its namesake´s four simple ingredients - wood, graphite, clay, and water - and narrates a tale of worldwide influence and innovation. Caroline Weaver, pencil connoisseur and CW Pencil Enterprise Shop owner, composes texts that extol the nuanced influence of her beloved and humble implement. Illustrations exclusively drawn for The Pencil Perfect by Oriana Fenwick, an artist from Zimbabwe who works with fine details and intense realism, pair with Weaver´s words to present a story that is both endearing and enlightening. Through profiles of pencil makers, anecdotes about famous writers´ favorite pencils, and essays about the surprising role of pencils in world history and culture, the chronicle of a modest but mighty tool unfolds. Follow the charming contrivance as it guides the course of early communication in the Scientific Revolution, the American Revolutionary War, the Anglo-French War, and the French Revolution: it is a historical journey and a captivating memoir. See how its past contemporarily compares with its use and appearance today - from the Blackwing 602 to novelty ferrules. The development of cultures and communities is laid bare within the timeline of this slender entity. The Pencil Perfect immortalizes the biography of an inanimate object within its pages for a future cast of historians, writers, and curious minds. Caroline Weaver is a life-long pencil obsessive who owns a shop dedicated solely to wood-cased pencils, new and old, from all over the world in New York City. As a child she coveted a set of Caran d´Ache Prismalo colored pencils and proudly sharpened six early-2000s-era black Ticonderogas before school each day. From there, her love of the pencil and knowledge of the subject flourished. After traveling the world in search of the finest pencils still in production, she opened her shop in 2015. Caroline lives in the East Village neighborhood of Manhattan and has a tattoo of a pencil on her forearm.
