The People Who Watched Her Pass By

A novel by


"Scott Bradfield has not simply staked out new literary terrain . . . he has mapped and colonized an entire new planet."
Michael Chabon

"Bradfield is one of my favorite living writers."
Jonathan Lethem

In his fifth novel, Scott Bradfield delivers an arresting and unsentimental childhood voice.

Salome Jensen is three years old when she is taken from her home by the man who fixes the hot water heater. As Sal drifts through Laundromats and people's homes, she develops a perspective of the world and an understanding of its people more meaningful than the most erudite observer could muster.

Sal is never a victim or abused, she's simply a child providing a humorous and fresh take on society.

The People Who Watched Her Pass By is often hilarious as well as startling, and it is a poignant new contribution to the body of literature of a respected prose craftsman.
