Whenever W. W. Norton & Co. picks up a work of fiction, you know it’s going to be good — especially when they give it a book cover like this one:
Piece of Mind: A Novel tells the story of Lucy, a twenty-seven-year-old challenged by the ins and outs of daily life and human relationships since suffering a brain injury in early childhood. Forced out into the world — and into her brother’s college living space in New York City — upon the unexpected death of her father, Lucy must learn who she is and find strength she never knew she possessed. Norton recommends this February 2016 novel for readers who love The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time or wish to discover “one of the most endearing and heroic characters of contemporary fiction.”
