Giant Baby by Laurie Foos

Coming in Fall 2012.

What do you do when something magical happens…in your own backyard?

Linda and Earl are a happy couple. Although married for many years, they have never had children. Still, they are content being together, and watching reruns of “I Love Lucy” keeps them close.  That, and a magical garden that never seems to grow what they plant.

 

One day Earl finds a set of infant toes in the loam. He and Linda plant them and watch in amazement as the garden produces an enormous baby.  Now Earl and Linda have to figure out how to be parents—if they are parents—and what to do about the giant baby who eats everything and cries for his mama.

Laurie Foos is the author of five novels: Ex Utero, Portrait of the Walrus by a Young Artist, Twinship, Bingo Under the Crucifix, and Before Elvis There Was Nothing. Her sixth novel, The Blue Girl, is forthcoming from Coffee House Press.
