They float and intersect like debris in tidal currents, and sometimes, when conditions are just right, they connect. In this episodic novel, cats dive for fish; a boat-builder is holed up in an abandoned fishmeal factory making sneakboxes (though nobody wants his craftsmanship anymore); a party is held on an island that vanishes at high tide. The protagonist, not quite a hero, quotes Lincoln, tells stories, and can perform a call that brings oysters out of the bay. He thinks he's found his place in the world. As people respond with their own stories, a community of no-longer-lost souls forms -- except for those who want to take that place away. Evocative, poetic descriptions of the shore and its seasons slip between the stories as the two main characters, a man and a woman, drift around one another -- now pulled together, now pushed apart. The Oyster Singer is a novel about second chances and soul mates, love lost and found, adventurers, drifters, developers and dreamers, in a place called Mud City on a shore bound for change.
