In Heaven, Indiana magical realism comes to the heartland. The suspended rules of everyday life seem as normal as pie or pi. Jan Maher expertly and effortlessly manipulates this timeless place and this place-full time into a rich amalgam of a novel. Heaven, Indiana is out of this world and so much of it.
