“Homes' latest darkly comic novel is more poignant and moving than it appears at first glimpse, and the rudderless, hapless Nixon scholar Harold Silver's year in the wilderness is more eye-opening than he can at first admit to himself. As Harry grows and grieves in his own way over the course of the insanity-laced year, we are happily along for the ride, unquestioningly loving the person he becomes. A truly remarkable feat of storytelling that both pulsates with the underlying ache of loss and manages to crack a couple of your ribs when you laugh too hard.”
— Seth Marko, UCSD Bookstore, La Jolla, CA

Harold Silver, a Richard Nixon Scholar, has spent a lifetime watching his younger, taller and more successful brother, George. But Harry knows that George has a murderous temper, and when he finally loses control the result is an act of violence which hurls the two brothers into entirely new lives.

A savage and dizzyingly inventive vision that penetrates the dark heart of contemporary America to tell a darkly comic tale of twenty-first century domestic life and how one deeply fractured family might begin to put itself back together.
