really liked it

A collection of unusual stories that range from pure, literary coming-of-age to near-future science fiction and horror. Though Percy plays games with the geography a landscape I know well, the human truth in most of the stories outshines the minor factual . . . well, I doubt they're errors. More like tiny, white lies.

These are generally stories of emotionally stunted and violent men attempting to break through their own façades, with varying degrees of success. Percy has a real sense for the physical landscape of Central Oregon and the small, hard-to-nail-down details of a life lived in the outdoors.
