LENNY’S BOOK OF EVERYTHING
“Something’s not right,” threeyear-old Lenore’s mother said, when she brought baby brother Davey home from hospital in 1969. Dad is a shadowy figure who works far away from
Ohio, so Cynthia Spink is a single mother. When Davey doesn’t stop growing – he has gigantism and by seven is as tall as a man – the “little family against the world” find sunshine in an alphabetical encyclopaedia, which brings the world to their doorstep. Achingly beautiful.
