From a fresh and highly original voice, a debut collection of stories
that illuminates the state of America today with an inscrutable, eerily
clarifying light.

In 'Lubbock Is Not a Place of the Spirit, ' a
Texas Tech student recognizable as John Hinckley, Jr. writes hundreds of
songs for Jodie Foster as he grows increasingly estranged from reality.
The young couple in 'The Thing About Norfolk, ' socially isolated after
a cross-country move, are dismayed to find themselves unable to resist
sexually deviant urges. And in the deeply touching title story, a
husband's layoff stretches a couple to their limit as they struggle to
care for their emotionally unbalanced young son. Set in cities across
America and spanning the last half-century, this collection draws a bead
on our national identity, distilling our obsessions, our hauntings, our
universal predicament.
