"Hitchcock is insightful on the limitations of sibling loyalty, poor parenting and the inherent contradiction of life in a small town"

If the title doesn’t grab you — but isn’t it terrific? — these coming-of-age stories of love and fury in the American west will. Bonnie-Sue Hitchcock came to literary attention with her elegant debut, The Smell of Other People’s Houses. Her new book mines the same ground — the weird and wonderful lives of small-town kids — with breathtaking skill in this collection of interlinking stories that dart from Alaska to California.
