Product Details


“A compelling story of myopic misunderstanding and mutual tragedy.”
Chicago Tribune

“Succeeds in stealing the front page news and bringing it home to the great American tradition of the social novel . . . A book to appreciate as we peer at the faces of strangers outside our windows, and wall ourselves in.”
The Boston Globe 

“Lays on the line of our national cult of hypocrisy. Comically and painfully he details the smug wastefulness of the haves and the vile misery of the have-nots.”
–Barbara Kingsolver, The Nation
