Inhaltsangabe: Winner of the 2001 Drue Heinz Literature Prize Selected by C. Michael Curtis The characters in Brett Ellen Block's debut collection of short stories may know their destinations, but they don't always rush to them. From a runaway on an ice cream truck to a down-and-out retiree in a porn shop, they struggle to face both their pasts and their futures. In a series of tightly focused and deftly drawn vignettes, Block explores the detours, potholes, and speed bumps along the road of life. These are stories about people at loose ends in their lives, coming to the realization that they can't always sit back and enjoy the ride. Whether they're committing petty larceny, moping their way through the winding streets and canals of Venica, or seeking to escape North Carolina's Outer Banks, Block's characters are learning to get behind the wheel and take control.

Rezension: "In language that is truthful, focused, deceptively ordinary, and always observant, Block crafts stories about intimations of disaster or moments of awakening. These stories combine the blue collar texture and bulldog perplexity we associate with Raymond Carver and, on the other hand, the clipped economies of William Carlos Williams." -C. Michael Curtis, senior editor, Atlantic Monthly
