I received this book for free through Goodreads First Reads.

This is a collection of thought-provoking stories about humanity. Charles Dodd White writes characters, particularly men, who capture your imagination as he describes them. It's not a pretty picture that he paints for your mind's eye, but it is a truthful and accurate one. He writes about the pain and the sorrow and the desperation felt by those who hit rock bottom and keep falling. That's what we read here - not so much the what and the where but the who and the how and the why. We're presented with feelings, most often guilt, that either explode into actions or fade into oblivion. The subtle yet binding thread that weaves these stories together is the hopelessness and despair that each character feels, peppered occasionally by a silver lining. Sanction County is a place we enter tentatively, even nervously, and the drawback for me is that it's not a place I want to revisit once I leave.
