From the Publisher:
Abandoned to foster care after his seemingly normal parents are imprisoned, young homosexual Brendan sequesters himself within a small Minneapolis apartment surrounded by his beloved books, until a reunion with his petty-thief brother draws him into a dangerous robbery scheme. Reprint. 15,000 first printing.
Who is Brendan Wolf?  It all depends on who you ask.
 
*  To the staff of a Minneapolis nursing home, he's the devoted partner of a much older man who's recently suffered a debilitating stroke.
 
*  To the women of a conservative, Christian pro-life organization, he's the tireless volunteer grieving over the recent loss of his wife and their unborn child.
 
*  To one gay activist, he's the unaffectedly charming, yet directionless and unemployed man that he's fallen hopelessly in love with
 
* To his brother and his brother's wife, he's the lynchpin of a scam that will net them enough money to start their lives over somewhere new.
 
* To the general public, he's an armed and dangerous fugitive
 
All of these people - and yet none of them - Brendan Wolf is an ambivalent lover, reluctant conspirator, counterfeit Christian, and, most of all, an unemployed daydreamer obsessed with a dead man.
     From the author of the award-winning The Year of Ice, this is a tour-de-force - a compelling, hilarious, heart-breaking novel about one utterly typical, and completely original, figure:  Brendan Wolf.
Abandoned to foster care after his seemingly normal parents are imprisoned, young homosexual Brendan sequesters himself within a small Minneapolis apartment surrounded by his beloved books, until a reunion with his petty-thief brother draws him into a dangerous robbery scheme. Reprint. 15,000 first printing.
