The center of everything

New York : Hyperion, [2004], c2003.

vi, 339 p. ; 21 cm.

Set in Kerrville, Kansas, The Center of Everything is told by Evelyn Bucknow, an endearing character with a wholly refreshing way of looking at the world. Living with her single mother in a small apartment, Evelyn is a young girl wincing her way through adolescence. With a voice as charming as it is recognisable, Evelyn immerses the reader in the dreams of the entire community. The people of Kerrville are the source from which Moriarty draws on universal dilemmas of love and belief to render a story that grows in intensity until it takes the reader where only the best fiction can.
