dc.description.abstractThis collection of stories explores gaps in human communication, the unknowability of others, and the anxiety that manifests from social experience. Many of the longer pieces are rooted in the Lake of the Ozarks, a 92-mile reservoir in rural central Missouri, where a pronounced socioeconomic divide exists between permanent residents and summer tourists. Some of those stories illustrate characters who live and work in the region; others investigate those who have abandoned it in hopes of greater things. The collection's shortest pieces are less specific to person or place but concern similar themes in more experimental forms.en_US
