Audrey Burges debut novel The Miniscule Mansion of Myra Malone sparkles with mystery and romance, testing the boundaries of Myra’s material world.

Once upon a time there was a house . . .

From her attic in the Arizona mountains, thirty-four-year-old recluse Myra Malone blogs about a miniature mansion – a dolls’ house – which captivates thousands of readers worldwide. Myra’s stories have created legions of fans who breathlessly await every blog post, trade photographs of the Mansion rooms and swap theories about the enigmatic author. Myra herself is tethered to the Mansion by a strange magic she can’t understand – rooms that appear and disappear overnight, music that plays in its corridors.

Across the country, Alex Rakes, the thirty-four-year-old heir of a custom furniture business, encounters two Mansion fans trying to recreate a room. Alex is shocked to recognize a reflection of his own life mirrored back to him in minute scale. The room is his own bedroom, and the Mansion is his family’s home, handed down from the grandmother who disappeared mysteriously when Alex was a child. Searching for answers, Alex begins corresponding with Myra. Together, the two unwind the lonely paths of their twin worlds – big and small – and trace the stories that entwine them, setting the stage for a meeting rooted in loss, but defined by love.

The Minuscule Mansion of Myra Malone by Audrey Burges is a magical novel with a love story at its heart, woven across multiple periods and perspectives about a mystical miniature mansion house.
