The solitude of the Upper Michigan Peninsula is Michael CollinsÂ's heart of darkness in this compelling story of the unquiet dead. Frank CassidyÂ's parents burned to death almost thirty years ago; now his uncle is deadÂshot by a mysterious stranger who lies in a coma in the local hospital. Frank, working menial jobs to support his unfaithful wife and two children, heads north in a series of stolen cars to dispute his cousinÂ's claim to the family farm. Once there, Frank wants answers, but realizes that what he is searching forÂand the promise of the American DreamÂis quickly receding from his grasp. Brilliant and unsettling, The Resurrectionists is an ironic yet chilling display of American culture in the seventies and a compassionate novel about a man struggling to overcome the crimes and burdens of his past.
