"In this powerful collection of stories, Cleveland writer Dan Chaon shows a marked affinity--in both setting and sensibility--with fellow Midwesterners Wright Morris and Willa Cather....Chaon, of course, is a writer of the '90s--so it's no longer the wail of a railroad whistle but the tail-lights of cars on the interstate that serve as a reminder of a world beyond the broad horizon of the Plains. The delusory hope of Cather's and Morris's characters has been updated, too, to a frank fear of the future. Another difference is that Chaon tends to explore the tension between rural and urban sensibilities through the eyes of those who were left behind, not those who got away. He can be both humorous and harrowing...Dan Chaon is a writer to savor and to watch."
""...dark, dense, occasionally hilarious stories...The best of these stories...possess a rare, disorienting force."
