"Schubart's latest peruses the photo-album-esque memories and experiences of a Vermont farm boy. The protagnist of this dreamlike coming-of-age story, farm-boy David, is simple by disposition. David doesn't so much come into the world as the world - in all its quotidian minutia - comes to him. David is naive and calm, qualities discouraged by his grandmother, who lives in New York. She mothers him when David's own mother recedes into postpartum depression.This novel, from start to finish, is David's life, told objectively with great insight and generous detail. Schubart, a gifted writer, uses beautiful language from the very beginning to set the scene: "They gaze at him, caught in silver halide, albumen, and salt print memory, these relatives with their sad, dark eyes and sepia surroundings, Fragonard backdrops... and the reticence of hands." - Kirkus Reviews
