James: "Adam is a debate champion caught up in his verbal dexterity. His psychologist parents are treating Darren, whose actions degrade into anger. A zig-zagging narrative reflects Adam’s attempts to piece together traumatic events buried in his adolescence. With wit and sincerity, ambiguity resolves into a complex, deeply humane place. Stay in the boat with Adam – you won’t regret it." A radical new take on the American family saga from a bona fide American literary genius, the acclaimed author of Leaving the Atocha Station and 10:04.
