** SOON TO BE A MAJOR MOTION PICTURE STARRING RENE ZELLWEGER, LOUIE ANDERSON AND OWEN TEAGUE ** Former academic Arthur Opp weighs 550 pounds and hasn't left his rambling Brooklyn home in a decade. Twenty miles away, in Yonkers, seventeen-year-old Kel Keller navigates life as the poor kid in a rich school and pins his hopes on what seems like a promising sporting career - if he can untangle himself from his family drama. The link between this unlikely pair is Kel's mother, Charlene, a former student of Arthur's. After nearly two decades of silence, it is Charlene's unexpected phone call to Arthur - a plea for help - that jostles them into action.

Recensioner i media

A stunningly sad and heroically hopeful tale ... This is a beautiful novel about relationships of the most makeshift kind. * O, The Oprah Magazine * Full of surprises and love and healing, Heft is the most unsentimental sentimental journey you will read this year. * The Times * Heft is written with a dry wit and the characters are hugely likeable Its moving and tragic too. * Daily Mail * Nuanced and poignant each of the three acutely written principals of Moores second novel hooks the reader in a heartbeat. Heft is an understated yet intensely emotional work. * Financial Times * A gentle fiction, as big-hearted as its star is heavy. * Vogue *
