In their small Michigan town, the Johnson family is the one that starts the fights, has the hard luck, and fuels the gossip. Ray's older brother, Billy, has just been found murdered by someone who watched him crawl a mile down the road, head bloody; who smoked four cigarettes while watching Billy die. Hated as he was, who would go the extra length to actually kill him? And Ray, knotted up with sorrow and a strange sense of relief, now bears the weight of the town's curious gaze as they dredge up the dark secrets he has been trying to keep hidden. Ray insists on telling his own story; one that is violent, tender, often humorous, and at the end, unexpectedly redemptive. 260 pages, all fine. 8vo - over 7Â¾" - 9Â¾" tall.
