Abstract:

"Firecracker is a bold and shocking true-to-life tale of murder in small town Kansas. Set against the stark beauty of Middle America, this astonishing story of abuse, suffering, and denial reveals dreams of escape. Meek, reclusive and talented Jimmy is emotionally imprisoned by his abusive, alcoholic older brother David - and fanatically religious mother Eleanor. With evil lurking in the shadows, the setting sun gives way to the blue evening and Jimmy finds escape in the neon glow of a traveling sideshow carnival. Sandra, billed as an 'oddity of nature, ' is the carnival's premier attraction. Yearning for a way our, Jimmy befriends Sandra, unaware that her imprisonment and degradation at the hands of Frank, the carnival owner, mirror his own. When David disappears, the metaphorical white-picket fences collapase, leaving raw emotions exposed to the spark of truth"--Container.
