About this Item

A book of stories by award-winning author that should be read as a novel from beginning to end. The stories are tied together by the locale: the Granite State Trailerpark, a sexy, comical, lonely, and often violent place. Very nice copy. Book has what appears to be light coffee stain on top edge. DJ has a hint of edgewear along the edges yet clean, bright, complete, not price clipped, and without any names, markings, etc. A collectible copy signed by the author on the title page.
