His wife does gymnastics and magic tricks. His crazy mother invents her own vocabulary, and his aunt writes her own version of the Bible. Through all this, Wyatt Palmer tries to live a normal life. But when he lures a toxic waste producing chemical plant to his economically depressed town, Wyat discovers he has truly made a deal with the Devil.
From the Publisher:
When assistant city manager Wyatt Palmer enters into a shady business deal he faces consequences that have a profound impact on him and those around him, including brother Cyril, lover Alyse, and mother Jeanne.When assistant city manager Wyatt Palmer enters into a shady business deal he faces consequences that have a profound impact on him and those around him, including brother Cyril, lover Alyse, and mother Jeanne.Without question Charles Baxter, whose ravishing novel The Feast of Love was a National Book Award finalist, is one of our finest contemporary writers. These two books, set in the Michigan landscape that Baxter has made his own, display his unparalleled gift for revealing the unexpected in everyday life. In the novel Shadow Play, a decent man, having made a "devil's bargain," finds himself on that precarious border between personal love and social responsibility. Reading group guide included.
Annotation:
When Wyatt Palmer succeeds in bringing to his town a chemical plant that emits toxic waste, he finds that he has made a deal with the devil.
