Phil | 177 comments Not long ago I stumbled upon a novel at my local bookstore that I believe was an Avon Bard selection. The synopsis on the back mentioned a retirement community in Florida where people tied up the loose ends of their lives and confronted issues that were haunting them. It seemed to be a work in the magical realism genre. I wrote the name down and lost it, but I believe "sun" was somewhere in the title (could have sworn it was Sunland).

Phil, is that your book? It's probably a lot less of a long shot than suggested. I don't know if it's magical realism, but Jansson's works are often strange.

I sent Phil a PM. He's still active, so hopefully we'll hear from him about this.
