The American essayist explores his boyhood in the town of Davenport, Iowa, outlining his quest to "make his life more than the sum of its worst moments in a chaotic household"--Cover flap.

From a striking talent with keen powers of observation comes this evocation of the eccentric Miller family's tangled connections between themselves, an unlikely cast of locals, and a seldom-documented urban Iowa, one not of cows and cornstalks but of concrete and rust, full of longstanding institutions buckling under economic pressures and peopled by citizens adrift in an America that began to vanish in the 1960s and '70s.

Miller has engulfed the reader in a dysfunctional family searching for what it means to be a family and a city grasping for identity in the wake of strip malls and pop cultural trinkets. From this expansive debut interspersed with Bob Campagna's vintage photographs of urban Iowa in the '70s readers will emerge rooted to the terra firma of our national literature and reminded of the dreams we inherit as our own, long after we've moved away.
