Abstract:

A hijacker and his hostage escape to a very strange, very dangerous farm Since his father died, every Saturday night has been the same for Dave and his mother. She starts by talking & mdash;aimless, weird fantasies about get-rich-quick schemes that never come to anything & mdash;but finally she goes silent, and that & rsquo;s when Dave becomes afraid. Mom has a way of getting very close that is repellent and appealing all at once, and he & rsquo;s terrified of where it might lead. One Saturday, a noise outside breaks the silence. A hijacker has escaped his stolen plane with a parachute, a hundred thousand dollars in cash, and one very frightened stewardess. The thief thinks he & rsquo;s gotten away with it, but he doesn & rsquo;t know what Dave & rsquo;s mother will do for an easy payday & mdash;and a chance to make her son a happy man.
