Synopsis: From the author of the bestselling 'House of Sand and Fog' comes a novel about sex and parenthood, about honour and masculinity. 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.
"The best book I read this winter...This book is so good, so damn compulsively readable, that I can hardly believe it...Dubus casts a net of dread over the reader so strong that one sometimes longs to put it down, but finds himself unable... you want to grab someone and tell them to read it - don't wait for the movie, read it now." (Stephen King)
"'More than cements Dubus' status as one of America's finest writers... Tension and confusion are wrought from every spare yet evocative sentence." (Irvine Welsh)
"'You cannot help but be mesmerised'" (Sunday Times)
"Explosive... profound...masterful...Difficult to put down, impossible to forget." (Kirkus (starred review))
"Riveting and disturbing." (Esquire)
