Abstract:

Simple Machines is a novel of passage--of myth and unexpected consequence--set in Wisconsin during one year in the life of Tomas Zimmermann. Living in an apartment above the bike shop owned by his embittered father, Tomas keeps company with Grey and Callie, his best friends since childhood. At summer's end, Tom leaves for Madison where he falls in with an unusual and ultimately destructive crowd. As Simple Machines approaches a climax, Grey and Callie reappear with trouble of their own, and Tom is forced to choose between old loyalties and a new sense of belonging.
