About Book

Thom Jones's second collection of stories takes its readers into an edgy, overadrenalized world of desire, mania and rage. Following his extraordinary debut in The Pugilist at Rest, Thom Jones returned with a collection of unparalleled fire and vision. Jones takes us from down-and-out in America to death and disease in Rwanda, introducing us to hard-luck fighters steeling themselves for battles they've already lost, doctors who fall in love with their illnesses, and a strung-out advertising writer who uses the hand of the devil to do the work of God.
