As she lives out her final days, an old woman increasingly escapes through her hospital window into visions of horror and delight. When her daughter Anna's finger vanishes and a few months later her knee disappears, Anna too feels the pull of the window. But in this novel by the author of the Man Booker Prize winner The Narrow Road to the Deep North, the window keeps opening wider, transforming reality in ways that are beautiful and strange.
