We Live In Water
From the bestselling author of Beautiful Ruins comes a darkly funny, utterly compelling collection of stories about the American family
We Live In Water is a world of lost fathers and redemptive con artists, of personal struggles and broken men.
In 'Thief', a blue-collar worker turns unlikely detective to find out which of his kids is stealing from the family holiday fund. 'Anything Helps' sees a homeless man try to raise money to buy his son the new Harry Potter book; and in 'Virgo', a newspaper editor attempts to get back at his superstitious ex-girlfriend by screwing with her horoscope.
We Live in Water is a wildly original, brilliantly realized contemplation of our times.
