A collection of five short stories, all but the last published in the New Yorker in the first few years of this decade. In order, " A House on the Plains" describes a young man's discovery that his mother is a serial killer, enticing men to a midwest farm to kill and rob them; "Baby Wilson" is told from the point of view of the boyfriend of a young woman who steals a child from a hospital; "Jolene: A Life" describes the disastrous relationships of a young woman who initially marries at fifteen to escape a foster home; "Walter John Harmon" is the story of a cult whose founder is a garage mechanic who was caught up in a seeming miracle; and, finally, "Child, Dead, in the Rose Garden" is about the choices made by an FBI agent initially called in to investigate the discovery of a boy's body in the White House grounds but later instructed to be part of a cover up.
