Abstract

Two teenage girls get summer jobs as tour guides at a Christian corporation's Poverty-Around-the-World display. A man seduces women with the nostalgia of smell. A young couple finds passion while waiting at a traffic light. These and other stories in the collection explore themes of loneliness, isolation, and coming-of-age in the contemporary American landscape.
