Description
Using bottom-rack tabloid headlines as inspiration-among them, "Boy Born with Tattoo of Elvis," "Woman Struck by Car Turns into Nymphomaniac," and "Titanic Victim Speaks Through Waterbed"-Butler moves from the fantastic to the realistic, from the lurid to the transcendent in exploring exile, loss, aspiration, and the search for self. Along the way, we meet a wife who uses her glass eye to spy on her cheating husband, a widow who sets herself on fire after losing a baking competition, a nine-year-old hit man, a woman who dates an extraterrestrial she met at Walmart, and a furtive and mournful JFK who survived the assassination. Weaving a seamless tapestry of high and low culture.
