- Dad.

- Yeah?

Mom needs you.

In a minute, Jesse.

She said she needed you now.

I know. I know.

But I'm busy right now, okay?

Stan, Declan, this way.

Come on.

All right.

Stan, put that box

right up there.

Declan, take that box

into the office.


All this goes, too?

Uh, yeah.

I think so.

What about this room?

Oh, God, there's so many rooms

in this house.

- Oh, boy.

- Maps.

Paper work.

Maps and more maps.

"Hammerhand will find the weak.

Hurl them down to rot and reek.

Bash your skull and toss you in.

Your pain is short.

Your blood runs thin.

The strong are spared

to breed and spawn.

Graze around the devil's yawn."

What are you doing?

Just going over

all these papers.

The kids are starving.

Do you want to go eat?


I'm hungry.

- Yeah, me too.

- Look at this.

- Is that this house?

- Yes.

- Look at that.

- Wow.

That was taken in the '30s.

Look at that car.

Isn't it great?

Look at the yard.

Doesn't look like that now.


But it will again.

- Think so?

- After you mow it.


Let's go eat.

I'm hungry.


Kristen, would you mind

hanging up the phone?

Where'd you get that jacket?

It's Grady's.

Hot drinks.

Who had the tea?

- Oh, she had the tea.

- You had the tea?

- Yeah.

- Tea for you.

And coffee for you.

You wanting cream and sugar?

I'll take some cream.

How do they have any right

to be dumping his stuff?

They bought it.

They bought everything in it.


They could rent a locker.

They could put it in storage.

And the cream.

- Oh, thanks.

- Great.

Food's okay?

- Yeah. Good.

- Yeah.

I'm Cooper, by the way.

Ray Pinski.

Great to meet you.

- This is Leah. Kristen.

- Hi.


- Jesse?

- Yeah.

- Kristen.

- Ray.

- Ray?

- Oh. My wife.

I'm Ellen Pinski.

Richard Jefferies

John Richard Jefferies (6 November 1848 – 14 August 1887) was an English nature writer, noted for his depiction of English rural life in essays, books of natural history, and novels. His childhood on a small Wiltshire farm had a great influence on him and provides the background to all his major works of fiction. Jefferies's corpus of writings includes a diversity of genres and topics, including Bevis (1882), a classic children's book, and After London (1885), an early work of science fiction. For much of his adult life, he suffered from tuberculosis, and his struggles with the illness and with poverty also play a role in his writing. Jefferies valued and cultivated an intensity of feeling in his experience of the world around him, a cultivation that he describes in detail in The Story of My Heart (1883). This work, an introspective depiction of his thoughts and feelings on the world, gained him the reputation of a nature mystic at the time. But it is his success in conveying his awareness of nature and people within it, both in his fiction and in essay collections such as The Amateur Poacher (1879) and Round About a Great Estate (1880), that has drawn most admirers. Walter Besant wrote of his reaction on first reading Jefferies: "Why, we must have been blind all our lives; here were the most wonderful things possible going on under our very noses, but we saw them not." more…
