Eleven short stories told by a variety of first-person narrators roaming the United States from the West to Wisconsin.
“These stories—dramatic monologues of the highest order—display a wealth of voices, each acting as a single instrument in the creation of an orchestral version of our American life. DeFrain has listened faithfully to his characters, and they have spoken to and through him with honesty and charm.” —Antonya Nelson
