Populated by characters as frank as their midwestern settings, What YouOCOve Been Missing, Janet DesaulniersOCOs debut collection, explores the unsettling moments when ordinary life ceases to exist. Parents, confused by their five-year-oldOCOs refusal to sit up in her chair, lift her blouse to find sheOCOs been beaten. A woman returns from a shopping trip just in time to see her husband kissing a young co-worker. A young husband constructs an elaborate and romanticized version of his new marriage and then ruins it in one gesture. These singular moments propel each person on a journey beyond the realm of everyday existence."
