Summary
In a world of perennial fire and growing extinctions, Anna's aged mother is dying, if her three children would just allow it. Condemned by their pity to living she increasingly escapes through her hospital window into visions of horror and delight. When Anna's finger vanishes and a few months later her knee disappears, Anna too feels the pull of the window. She begins to see that all around her others are similarly vanishing, but no one else notices. All Anna can do is keep her mother alive. But the window keeps opening wider, taking Anna and the listener ever deeper into a strangely beautiful story about hope and love and orange-bellied parrots
