Publisher's Summary

From a writer Steve Almond calls "[T]he master of the down and out that just got worse" comes a collection of stories that live vividly in the listener's memory long after the final word has been spoken. 

Taking place in a world of desperate people who cling to hope but have few expectations, Roberge introduces us to a motley crew of cripples, drug addicts, former child actors, chimpanzee boxers, exterminators, and assorted criminals. 

These desperate, boldly original stories are distinguished by a stark prose reminiscent of Denis Johnson or Lorrie Moore, but are ultimately all their own - powerful, riveting, deeply felt, and darkly funny.
