Summary

David Huddle’s short fiction appears frequently in publications including Esquire, Harper’s Magazine, and The Best American Short Stories. In this compelling novel, he examines the complex mixtures of longing and contentment that make up contemporary relationships.

Deeply affected by a teenaged affair with a man nearly three times her age, Marcy Bunkleman subtly shapes the lives of everyone she meets. As she and the people closest to her tell their stories, an incredible picture emerges of secrets and lies, of knowledge and ignorance, and gradually of people longing to recapture those moments of effortless goodness in their lives.

As Huddle gently strips away the layers of stories we tell ourselves and others, we find the strengths and weaknesses of people who could easily be our friends, our spouses, or ourselves. Grippingly told in a multiple-cast narration, The Story of a Million Years provides an entralling look at the drama hidden in even the most quiet lives.
