Morris Lessmore finds himself blown away and rendered coloruless by a storm, and through books finds purpose, healing, and the route to his own story.
The description reads, “Inspired, in equal measures, by Hurricane Katrina, Buster Keaton, The Wizard of Oz, and a love for books, “Morris Lessmore” is a story of people who devote their lives to books and books who return the favour.
Morris Lessmore is a poignant, humorous allegory about the curative powers of story.”
In the book, the words of Morris’ life are blown off the page and his life becomes a wordless grief after the storm, until he finds new words in books and in his own narrative.
