Abstract:

Passion and betrayal, violent desperation, ambivalent love that hinges on hatred, and the quest for acceptance by those who stand on the edge of society, these are the hard-hitting themes of this first collection of stories by the author. In the title story, a vigilant young man working in a halfway house finds himself unable to defend against the rage of one of the inmates. In "White Trees, Hammer Moon," a man soon to leave home for prison finds himself as unprepared for a family camping trip in the mountains of New Hampshire as he has been for most things in his life. And in "Forky," an ex-con is haunted by the punishment he receives just as he is being released into the world.c.
