Summary
  • "A collection of harrowing and personal stories by the O. Henry Prize-winning author David Means."
  • In this collection of short stories, Means branches out beyond the explorations of violence and trauma with which he is often identified. He prominently displays his sly humor in tales about fatherhood, marriage, a homeless brother, the nature of addiction, and the death of a friend at the hands of a serial-killer nurse. -- adapted from jacket
