'A dual Kirkus Best Fiction and Best Debut Fiction SelectionSemi-Finalist for the VCU Cabell First Novel Award“Astonishing . . . this is one of those books you stop what you're doing to finish, take a breath to ponder its profundities, and start again.” —Kirkus Reviews, starred review"The Assembler of Parts is a remarkable modern fable of grief, redemption, and the durability of family love. With humor, insight, and a touch of the bizarre, the narrator makes us think about the ways we are loved despite our imperfections, and the spark of the divine that makes us human. Raoul Wientzen is a heavenly writer." —Jessica Handler, author of Invisible Sisters: A Memoir and Braving the Fire: A Guide to Writing About Grief and Loss“Without pulling any punches, The Assembler of Parts and its wise and unforgettable narrator, Jessica Mary Jackson, will teach you that what could be perceived as tragic is in truth a great opportunity for love, acceptance and healing. I loved it!” —Barbara Esstman, author of The Other Anna and Night Ride Home“It is a miraculous book that turns our universe inside out, allowing us to view it from an entirely new angle, and Raoul Wientzen brings us such a story.
