In his first collection of short fiction, Keith Lesmeister plows out a distinctive vision of the contemporary Midwest. A recovering addict chases down a herd of runaway cows. A middle-aged couple rediscovers their love for one another through the unlikely circumstance of robbing a bank. The daughter of a deployed soldier wages a bloody war on the rabbits ravaging her family’s farm. This collection illuminates how we are shaped and buoyed by our intimate connections with others — both those close to us, and those we hardly know.
