The Remarkable Inventions of Walter MortinsonA prodigal inventor flees his home to find his destinyIn the humdrum town of Moormouth Walter Mortinson’s unusual inventions cause nothing but trouble After one of his contraptions throws the town into chaos Walter’s mother demands he cut the nonsense and join the family mortuary businessFar off on When my 10 year old son was small—maybe four or five—we watched a movie that choked him up When I asked him what he thought about the show he could only sueak out “salty watermelon” It was all he could think of to describe what he was feeling happiness with a distinct touch sadness underneath A bitter that only seemed to enhance the sweet Since then “salty watermelon” has become our shorthand for things that make us feel Happy but sad bitter but sweet hurting but hopeful I was lucky enough to snag an advanced copy of THE REMARKABLE INVENTIONS OF WALTER MORTINSON at a bookseller's show and knew going into it that it would be something of a spectacle It is after all described on the back as “Big Fish meets Willy Wonka” As expressive as that phrase is it does little justice to this confection of color and whimsy and humor and imagination It was so lovely and funny and magical but also so human—and its conclusion both breaks your heart and sews it carefully back up againI don’t want to give anything away but I will say that THE REMARKABLE INVENTIONS OF WALTER MORTINSON is the sweetest and saltiest of watermelon HIGHLY HIGHLY RECOMMEND
