    Set in the seamy underside of American life at the moment before the world changed, it juxtaposes lust for domination with hunger for connection, sexual violence with family love. It seizes the listener by the throat with the same psychological tension, depth, and realism that characterized Andre Dubus' #1 bestseller, House of Sand and Fog, and has an even greater sense of the dark and anguished places in the human heart.

    Suzn F says: "Andre Dubus III Does It Again"
    "Going nowhere. Slowly."
    Overall

    A painful listen. Instead of using stream of consciousness as a device to highlight the motivation of one character in a specific moment, we spend nearly the entire book inside the heads of all the characters. And their mental meandering is not all that interesting...
    The plot consists of disparate threads which one hopes will all somehow come together but which mostly do not. The ending left me shaking my head and kicking myself for having listened to the whole thing. Just awful!
