"Literary fantasy novel about the strange Dufore family of the hamlet of Esperance, Vermont, who must cope with unusual problems; spontaneous combustion, decades-long insomnia, second sight, and transformations into trout. A first novel."

One of my all-time favorite books. And definitely my favorite book that no one has heard of. (My other favorites are usually award winners, like Shipping News and The God of Small Things). This was published in 1991, so it might be too much to hope that the author will write another book, but I keep hoping! This copy I'm posting is an extra that I found at a used book store -- I'll never part with my original that I bought in 1991! :)
