The daily rhythm of a veterinarian's family in rural New England is shaken when a hunting accident leaves their eldest son in a coma. With the lives of his loved ones unhinged, the veterinarian struggles to maintain stability while searching for the man responsible.
But in the midst of his great trial an unexpected visitor arrives, requesting a favor that will have profound consequences-testing a loving father's patience, humor, and resolve, and forcing husband and wife to come to terms with what "family" truly means.
The Call is a gift from one of the most talented and extraordinary voices in contemporary fiction - a unique and heartfelt portrait of a family, poignant and rich in humor and imagination.
"A triumph of quiet humor and understated beauty. . . . Murphy's subtle, wry wit and an appealing sense for the surreal leaven moments of anger and bleakness, and elevate moments of kindness, whimsy, and grace." (Publishers Weekly)
