"Ray Robertson is an irrepressible voice, with brass balls and a heart of gold."—Jonathan Evison
Peter Bayle—heavy drinker, philosopher, scholar, anemic lover—is in Kansas, writing a feature on middle America's newfound love for hockey. There he meets a morphine-injecting reverend, a reviled reporter, and a drug salesman; obsessed by his self-destructive new friends, Bayle abandons the project and returns home to confront a future and a girlfriend he may no longer want.
Ray Robertson is the author of seven novels and two collections of award-nominated nonfiction. His novel David was a Women's National Book Association Great Group Reads Selection, 2013.
