From a literary perspective, however, what is most galling about this scene is the way it forces the narrative to a grinding halt for its duration.

Synopsis


A staggering, unnerving story collection about the lost members of the Boomer Generation—chronic underachievers at work and love whose malaise is tempered by booze and cars. They seek solace in each other's company via weekend trips and wine-fuelled dinner parties when not conducting interventions or fixing their cars; through moments of seeming indifference, humor, and false bravado, their demeanors mask a disquieting rage at how they've lost their way and a burning, shattering desire to try to find it again.

Dennis E. Bolen is a former parole officer and the author of six previous works of fiction in Canada.
