Tunes - Hoboken, NJ

Make way for history as only Dave Eggers could stage it. It all started when John "Minnie" Moore built a mine in Idaho and sold it to Englishman Henry Miller. Then Henry married a local lass named Annie and built her a mansion, hence the "Millers' Minnie Moore Mine Mansion." After Henry died and Annie was hoodwinked-losing all but the mansion-she and her son took to raising pigs in the yard, as some are won't to do. But the town wanted those pigs out. Who could have guessed that Annie and her crew would remove the whole mansion instead-rolling it away slowly on logs-while she and her son were still living in it? Narrated with metafictional flair, this delightful tale is proof positive that nonfiction can be as lively and artful as any storybook
