From the jacket cover


In its nuanced portrait of a middle-aged suburbanite, this novel challenges assumptions about kinship and selfhood, crime and punishment, and appearance and reality when Steven Howe-Boomer learns his father--assumed to have died in 1958--is, in fact, incarcerated in the Colorado State Penitentiary.


Author's Notes

Steven’s mother told him that his father had died. Steven, grown up, finds that his father hadn’t died at all, but was alive in a prison in Canyon City.
