The modern American male is center stage in this riveting collection of short stories. The characters in this powerful debut come from all walks of life—hockey players, middle managers, feckless bouncers, and wayward husbands—but all share a tendency to turn violent when life spins out of control. In these haunting, finely tuned pieces, Gary Amdahl illuminates the rage and desperation lurking beneath the veneer.
“I had all my teeth until this time last year, at which high-water mark they exploded from my gums like tiny enameled angels, bursting in a rain of blood heavenward, released at last from this pit of woe, my mouth.”
