About this title
Angie, riding her bicycle, is looking for her father. He might be any one or more of the many men her mother has known. Some migrant workers could provide clues to solving the mystery of her birth. Angie lives in smalltown USA in a time of perpetual war. Brave and wounded lives surround her. Ordinary people transformed by the war culture: a world of heroic sacrifice, desperate patriotism and religious obsession, the hell that may be a form of amazing grace. These are deer hunters and trailer park people. Comic characters in TV shows, but not in this tragic tale where they throw themselves into life and death. They are the "mystical dreamers" portrayed in a song. Their burial places are holy. The trailer park becomes a burial mound. Lonesome Twosome is an epic in a girl's words, a big song in a small voice.About the Author:
