Summary of Museum of Stones
Like a spell cast over mother and son, Museum of Stones's terse scenes reveal a possessive/obsessive world of a love that must be released. An exceptional child, the boy collects far too many rocks, invents a garbage recycler that runs amok, does not "play well." The extended family is cruel and dubious. His mother takes their relationship to painful extremities, threatening her own sanity and health, in a wrenching, yet often funny account that culminates in a terrifying trip in a rubber boat fleeing Peruvian revolutionaries.
