Description

A brilliant first novel by Jeff Farrell, grandson of literary juggernaut James T. Farrell. In the spirit of Celine, with the prose of Tolstoy and the anguish of Solzhenitsyn, comes a contemporary tale like no other. Reality, really bites, so to speak. Meet the gentle, but developmentally disabled maintenance worker who had spent the formative years of his life being beaten by his resentful, racist mother. Meet the prostitute who falls in love, despite the irony of the concept. Meet the two brothers who run a local rendering plant and are just pure evil. And meet two twenty-something couples living together in an apartment, struggling with drugs, loss and each-other. Then hold on as everything crashes together, then crumbles in the end to all start the cycle over again.
