Harrison instills in the reader a sense of how it is that where the protagonists come from illuminates (in ways both big and small) the inevitable end toward which they hurtle. This narrative will keep you on the edge of your seat a startling meditation on the origins and outcomes of following an impulse through to the end.
Synopses & Reviews
Their plans were conceived in a drunken excitement and resulted in more horror than any of them could have imagined. There was the poet able to retreat into beatific reveries of superb fishing in cold, fast streams; the Vietnam vet consumed by uppers, downers and violence; and the girl who loved only one of them — at first. With their ideals ostensibly in order, they set out from Florida to save the Grand Canyon from a dam they believed was being built. Along with the tapedeck for the car, the liquor and the drugs, there was also a case of dynamite.
