About the Book:

With a tender, wised-up voice, J.R. Miller writes about the mysteries of attachment like no one else, reminding us that childhood and adulthood were never separate categories, but continuous, alive, and enmeshed. An excellent debut. ~Paul Lisicky, author of Unbuilt Projects, The Burning House, and Lawnboy.

Guns, punches, fishing. Empathy, forgiveness, love. This is what readers should expect from Miller’s astounding debut collection. His work harkens to what it means to me a boy, a man, a father, a human being struggling in this crumbling world. ~Ira Sukrungruang, author of Southside Buddhist, In Thailand It Is Night, and Talk Thai: The Adventures of Buddhist Boy.
