Seed is the story of Bill Starr' s final days. Childless but with a lifetime' s worth of possessions and a nearly infinite web of extended family, Bill endeavors to empty his house completely before he dies by summoning distant relatives to claim their inheritance. Many of his letter... s go unanswered, but those who do appear show up only to find that their reward is often much less valuable than they might expect. What they get instead are Bill' s memories, made vivid by each item from the past, memories that are more exotic and curious than the lives currently lived by his young relatives. Accompanied by his housekeeper, Ramona, and his young gardener, Jonathan, Bill is a somewhat cantankerous, wildly intelligent, and often forgetful man who recalls and speaks to his passed wife, often thinking that she's not dead. His unwillingness to recognize what has happened to her and to give away his only possession of any value, a 1937 Pierce-Arrow automobile that they bought together, becomes the measure of his grief and of his love in this profoundly funny novel that faces death and love sincerely.
