From the teenagers who witness a tragedy at a carnival to the twins who run the local ice cream parlor, each of the eleven linked stories in Patricia Ann McNair's debut collection gives you a glimpse of life in the small town of New Hope.New Hope's residents' struggle under the weight of life itself. At its center are the witnesses of a terrible accident at a carnival, Nova, Sky, and Michael, and like in Temple of Air, they're continually brought back. In "When Is A Door Not A Door," Christy baby sits a developmentally disabled teenager; in "The Way it Really Went," McNair gives us the truth of when a man finds a cancerous lump and how he has to break the news to his wife.Unapologetically in your face, McNair's stories pull you close enough to dig their way into your subconscious and leave you haunted.
