A wonderful entrancing story! a hobgoblin, trades places with the real Henry Day, getting a chance to life out a human life, after waiting about 100 years for his turn. The previous Henry Day, now renamed Anaday, struggles to make sense of his world, and to fit in with the band of hobgoblins. Both characters struggle to figure out what to do with the lives that they have. I like the fact that Donohue took a familiar narrative, that of the stolen/exchanged child, and tackled deeper questions of what it means to live a meaningful life. This book reminded me of both and Kazuo Ishiguro’s “Never Let me Go” as well as Adam Phillips’ book Missing Out (which had too much psychoanalysis for me to finish).
