Carolyn Parkhurst is well known for her original storylines, and The Nobodies Album, with its quirky plot, frequent inclusion of novel excerpts, and literary self-allusions, continues that tradition. As a murder mystery, The Nobodies Album may not appeal to conventional suspense readers. But as a family drama, Parkhurst's novel offers a compelling look at the effects of grief and the healing power of redemption. Although a few reviewers criticized the multiple coincidences and literary chicanery, most heralded Parkhurst's latest as worthy read, one deserving of a large, appreciative audience. This is an excerpt from a review published in Bookmarks magazine.
