Gray318: Great House

WW Norton, October 2010. Whoa! I can't wait to see this in the stores...will it be uncoated? I first thought this represented a toppling layer cake, then a house, but now that I've read the plot summary it might be more about this:
"...Connecting these stories is a desk of many drawers that exerts a power over those who possess it or have given it away. As the narrators of Great House make their confessions, the desk takes on more and more meaning, and comes finally to stand for all that has been taken from them, and all that binds them to what has disappeared."
