Observatory Mansions

Once the Orme family?s magnificent ancestral estate, Observatory Mansions is now a crumbling apartment complex, home to an eccentric group of misfits. One of them is Francis Orme, who earns his livelihood as a living statue. When not practicing ?inner and outer stillness,? Francis steals the cherished possessions of others to add to his private museum. The other tenants are equally as odd: his mother and father, who haven?t interacted in years; a man who continually sweats and cries; a recluse who prefers television to reality; and a woman who behaves like a dog. When Anna Tapp arrives among them she stirs their souls, bringing long forgotten memories to the surface?and arousing fears that this new resident intends to provoke a metamorphosis. *This book may have remainder mark*
