9780007580958: See How Small

A riveting novel about the aftermath of a brutal murder of three teenage girls, written in incantatory prose 'that's as fine as any being written by an American author today' (Ben Fountain) One late autumn evening in a Texas town, two strangers walk into an ice cream shop shortly before closing time. They bind up the three teenage girls who are working the counter, set fire to the shop, and disappear. 'See How Small' tells the stories of the survivors - family, witnesses, and suspects - who must endure in the wake of atrocity. Justice remains elusive in their world, human connection tenuous. Hovering above the aftermath of their deaths are the three girls. They watch over the town and make occasional visitations, trying to connect with and prod to life those they left behind. "See how small a thing it is that keeps us apart," they say. A master of compression and lyrical precision, Scott Blackwood has surpassed himself with this haunting, beautiful, and enormously powerful new novel.

Review:

The Amazon Spotlight Pick for January 2015: Though based on a real unsolved murder of three girls in Austin, Texas, See How Small is not a traditional mystery or thriller. Author Scott Blackwood moves back and forth through time in his novel, examining multiple dimensions of the fallout from a heinous crime. For those looking for a neat bow tied on the end of a grisly, inexplicable murder, this is not the novel for them. But for those in search of a deeper way to understand the darker, more inexplicable side of life, and to enjoy some excellent writing in the process, See How Small has much to offer. Blackwood uses exceptional prose—along with his nonlinear storytelling—to explore grief, memory, and even how it feels to have been part of a crime years afterward.--Chris Schluep
