A virtuoso literary work. . . . Flashbacks and side scenes deepen the story which curls and twines like a thrusting tropical vine through the past, roping in sisters, wives, old lovers, boyhood adventures, and jealousies.

Graywolf gave my story a chance when few others would. It's an honor and a privilege to join the roster of this world-class press, committed to disrupting the canon by taking wild, unpopular, beautiful chances.
