When fourteen-year-old Micah Darling travels to Los Angeles to reunite with the mother, who deserted him seven years ago, he finds himself out of his league in a land of magical freedom. He does new drugs with new people, falls in love with an enchanting but troubled equestrienne named Charlotte, and gets thrown out of school over the activities of a club called the New Luddites. Back in the Midwest, an ethereal young woman comes to Stone City on a mission that will unsettle the lives of everyone she meets--including Micah's half-sister, Lyris, who still fights fears of abandonment after a childhood in foster care, and Micah's father, Tiny, a petty thief. An investigation into the stranger's identity uncovers a darkly disturbed life, as parallel narratives of the comic and tragic, the mysterious and the everyday, unfold in both the country and the city
The end of vandalism : a novel by Tom Drury( )

12 editions published between 1994 and 2014 in English and held by 65 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ten years ago, Tom Drury's groundbreaking debut, The End of Vandalism, was serialized in the New Yorker, was compared to the work of Sherwood Anderson and William Faulkner by USA Today, and was named a Best Book of the Year in multiple publications. Welcome to Grouse County-a fictional Midwest that is at once familiar and amusingly eccentric-where a thief vacuums the church before stealing the chalice, a lonely woman paints her toenails in a drafty farmhouse, and a sleepless man watches his restless bride scatter their bills beneath the stars. At the heart of The End of Vandalism is an unforgettable love triangle set off by a crime: Sheriff Dan Norman arrests Tiny Darling for vandalizing an antivandalism dance and then marries the culprit's ex-wife Louise. So Tiny loses Louise, Louise loses her sense of self, and the three find themselves on an epic journey. At turns hilarious and heart-breaking, The End of Vandalism is a radiant novel about the beauty and ache of modern life

5 editions published in 2017 in German and held by 17 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Grouse County ist die Heimat der Darlings und anderer liebenswerter Eigenbrötler. Das Leben der Menschen dort zerbröckelt langsam, aber unaufhaltsam, denn sie alle jagen ihren unrealistischen Träumen nach - gleich, was es kostet. Sie sind der Dorn im Auge des örtlichen Sheriffs, Dan Norman, der bestrebt ist, die Harmonie in seinem County zu wahren. Dafür ist er sogar bereit, sich auf einen Wahlkampf um das Amt des Sheriffs einzulassen. Die jüngere Generation sieht dagegen nur einen Ausweg, um dem ländlichen Mief zu entkommen: Grouse County verlassen und nie mehr zurückkehren. (Quelle: Klappentext)
