"The Art of Salvage
is a finely written and acutely observed novel about how, from the wreckage of broken lives, pieces can be gathered and glued back together into something not just make-do but permanent and noble. Indeed, the art of salvage is the art of living, is the art of hope, and what holds it together is that messiest of glues: love."
— Yann Martel
