Gunfire erupts at a county fair. A woman uses poetry to humiliate her abusive lover. A boy manipulates his younger friend into baptizing the preacher's daughter. A man's family watches as he pummels a drunk in a bar. The stories in Lake Horatio whisk together the loneliness, disappointment, and madness of characters haunted by Southeastern Louisiana's emptiness.
