Farro Fescu is the proud and observant concierge of Echo
Terrace, a condominium in New York City. Passing through his lobby
at all hours is an exotic cross-section of the world's population:
an Egyptian-born plastic surgeon who specializes in gender
reassignment, a fighter pilot who flew for Nazi Germany during
World War II, an Iraqi spice merchant and the world-famous quilter
with whom he's having an affair, the adulterer's son who dreams of
becoming an undertaker, and the widow whose apartment is a jungle
Eden filled with a menagerie of specimens.
Farro Fescu knows them all, knows all their secrets. Yet he does
not know what is in his own heart -- why, after a long, hard life,
he is still alive, and still alone. Nor does he know what he will
be capable of in the face of sudden, overwhelming tragedy.
