Title Profile & Character Information

The Fifty Year Sword

Annotation
The setting is decidedly thrillerish: in an East Texas ranch house, five orphans listen attentively to a story about a weapon quest, even as a big black box with five latches looms before them. But given that Danielewski is the author of books like the cutting-edge House of Leaves, dont expect standard, thrillerish writing.
