Carolyn Parkhurst has tackled some odd topics — in 2003’s The Dogs of Babel, a man tried to teach his dog to speak — but she sets The Nobodies Album in a more conventional world. Novelist Octavia Frost is used to inventing unlikely plots, but when her famous rocker son is accused of bludgeoning his girlfriend to death, she finds her life is turning into one of her own books. A previously dormant maternal instinct drives her to attempt to prove her son’s innocence and, in the process, close the wounds that have kept them from speaking to each other for four years. Excerpts from Frost’s novels punctuate the low-key, introspective murder-mystery narrative, offering a pinhole glimpse into the mind of a fascinating woman for whom life and fiction are stitched tightly together.
