    Summary

    In the first quiet billows of an oncoming storm, his uncle wraps an arm over his shoulder and shivers in the wind, hair that grayed too early blustered out of its semblance, his eyes haunted by a ghost Pharm fears he will never stop chasing. How many people will he see pieces of Intouch in, his nephew wonders? How much more sea glass will he pull out of the sand to keep as if all the mismatched specks of color can be made into one whole?

    At twenty, the narrator of the novel he wrote under a different name was broken, burdened, universal.

    At fifty, Korn is cold, quiet, and tired.

    There’s a house Pharm loves on the beach, a harbor, a sanctuary, that suddenly feels emptier than it ever has.

    Summary

    Chu blinks. The grin that the young guy just gave him was huge, bright, and filled with a level of enthusiasm that Chu has never seen in one person at a time. It's both cute and unnerving. "Hi!" he says. "Nice to meet you! I'm Guo Changcheng and I just started here today!" He is literally bouncing with excitement and glowing with an expression Chu can only describe as '!!!'.
