First Edition, 1987
A sharply original coming-of-age story about a 17-year-old in the small town of Execution, Texas, whose struggles with his identity are complicated and complemented by those around him. This story introduces a startlingly original new voice that shows a depth and complexity of character, time, and place that far exceed expectations of a debut novel.
