Chase only ever wrote two novels which is a damn shame. Her first one, "During the Reign of the Queen of Persia" was phenomenal, a darkly weird meditation on America's flabby white underbelly.
"The Evening Wolves" is similar but more focused. Where "During" covered several generations of a failing midwest family, "Wolves" is really about two sisters and their shitty father. Its tighter core isn't a fault. I'm not sure actually why I didn't like it more. Chase herself wrote that after the success
