Author Dave Eggers and artist Júlia Sardà spin a quirky historical event into a whimsical and tall-ish true tale of ingenuity.
It all started when John “Minnie” Moore built a mine in Idaho and sold it to Englishman Henry Miller. Then Henry married a local lass named Annie and built her a mansion. After Henry died and Annie was hoodwinked – losing all but the mansion – she and her son took to raising pigs, as some are wont to do. But the town wanted those pigs out. Who could have guessed that Annie would remove the whole mansion instead – rolling it away slowly on logs – while she and her son were still living in it?
Narrated with metafictional flair, make way for history as only Dave Eggers could stage it.
