The Unnameables

Out of stock
Everything on Medford and Prudy's island has a purpose and a proper name, and Useless items are forbidden. The two friends discover an artifact depicting a strange, goat-like figure-an object so Useless it is Unnameable. Prudy knows her duty: she should report the object or destroy it. Medford's decision to hide the beautiful object places a strain on their friendship. Then a living Goatman turns up at Medford's house and uncovers Medford's other secret: he's been carving Unnameable objects. The tempest accompanying the Goatman's appearance grips the entire town, forcing Prudy and the others to question their strictly utilitarian beliefs.
