Arthur’s grandfather disappeared four years ago. All he left behind are his notebooks full of stories about little — known African tribes—including the Minimoys, a miniature people who are all less than one inch tall.
But the Minimoys can’t possibly be real . . . can they?
Arthur is about to find out, as he un covers a hidden message that catapults him on an adventure wilder than he had ever imagined. In just three days, he must find a way to the land of the Minimoys, recover a stolen treasure, battle an invading force of mosquito — riding warriors, defeat an evil wizard, win the heart of a very independent prin cess—and somehow get back home again.
It seems like an impossible task, but as he’ll discover along the way, sometimes the littlest heroes can make the biggest difference. . . .

In the newest addition to the Writer in the City series, acclaimed novelist Patrick McGrath presents three stories about New York City spanning three centuries. “The Year of the Gibbet” tells the tale of a young boy during the American Revolution, whose mother is hanged for defying the British army—and the tortured sense of complicity the boy carries with him for the remainder of his life. In “Julius,” a wealthy merchant at the time of the Civil War punishes his son’s passion for the arts by denying him the girl he loves, driving the boy to insanity. And “Ground Zero,” situated in modern day Manhattan, tells the disquieting story of a psychiatrist who becomes infatuated with one of her patients, a man who began visiting a prostitute after the events of 9/11. A masterful selection of tales wracked with erotic obsession, madness, and class warfare, and ranging in style from the gothic to the coolly analytical, Ghost Town is a paean to a city that has always inspired and captivated the world
