Description

* By the winner of the Pulitzer Prize for Fiction 2013 and the EFG/Sunday Times Best Short Story Award 2014* ‘An idiosyncratic and compelling voice’ Michiko Kakutani, New York TimesAn ATF raid, a moonshot gone wrong, a busload of female cancer victims determined to live life to the fullest – these are some of the compelling themes explored in this funny, sad, brilliantly bizarre debut collection. A lovesick teenage Cajun girl, a gay astrophysicist, a teenage sniper on Los Angeles police payroll, a post apocalyptic bulletproof-vest salesman – each seeks connection and meaning in landscapes made uncertain by the voids parents and lovers should fill.
