'A classic...One of the finest American novelists writing today'
Los Angeles Times Book Review
Welcome to Provincetown, Cape Cod - the last outpost of civilisation, the end of the earth. In the aftermath of a failed suicide attempt, Leonard English moves here to work as a part-time disk jockey cum private investigator. On his first day, he falls hopelessly in love with a beautiful, young woman - who turns out to be gay. His first investigation, the search for an elusive artist, proves equally frustrating. But as winter draws in and Leonard's anguish mounts, his desperate quests - for the artist, for love, for some kind of redemption - move towards an astonishing, apocalyptic finale.
