A small southern town gives birth to a dangerous man with a broken heart and a high-powered rifle … A young girl, caught up in an inner-city gang war, crosses the line from victim to avenger … An innocent man is hunted by government agents for an unspecified crime…A boy and girl fall in love while ransacking a rich man’s house during the waning days of the Vietnam War … A compromised psychiatrist confronts the unstable patient he slept with … A father and son wage a lethal battle of wits over the whereabouts of a stolen diamond and a missing woman.

In turn suspenseful, surreal, romantic, and tragically comic, these tales journey headlong into the heart of our myths – about class, gender, freedom, and
regeneration through violence – and reveal that the truth waiting for us there is not what we’d expect.
