Abstract:

Three unconnected people travel north, each passing in isolation over one of the most troubled and controversial dividing lines in the world: the Mexico/US border. But in a melee of language and blood, their stories and the stories of those they meet--of a young serial killer, a waitress and graphic novelist and her lover (and former professor), and an outsider artist in a mental institution--gradually begin to coalesce.
