Notes From Your Bookseller Though not uncommon for either of these creators, Dave Eggers and Kelly Murphy have managed to design a story so beautiful, thought-provoking and inspiring that Faraway Things will linger in your mind for days. Murphy’s illustrations follow Lucian as he discovers a “faraway thing” on the seashore and then must decide what to do when the owner appears. This new Dave Eggers tale will feel right at home on any bookshelf — or within arm’s reach for anyone looking for a quick daydream. From a bestselling author comes an evocative, classic-feeling adventure tale about a boy and his sword, and how giving away something precious leads to an even more important discovery. Lucian's father called them faraway things, those mysterious objects orphaned upon the windswept shore, their stories long lost in the shroud of ocean fog. Lucian's discovery on the beach this particular day, though, is no ordinary faraway thing. It's a cutlass: strong, shiny, and powerful. As its history comes to light, Lucian faces a choice: cling to the sword he loves or accept a gift that shines farther, wider, and deeper than he could have ever dreamed. Stunningly illustrated with evocative art by Kelly Murphy and written by award-winning and bestselling writer Dave Eggers, here is a profound and resonant tale about the reward of letting go.
