Overview

These eleven essays span continents, culture, and class. Fiction writer and essayist Charles D'Ambrosio inspects manufactured homes in Washington state; tours the rooms of Hell House, a Pentecostal "haunted house" in Texas; visits the dormitories and hallways of a Russian orphanage, and explores the textual space of family letters. He introduces us to a defender of gray whales; the creator of Bisquat, a utopian experiment in Austin, Texas,; and a younger version of himself, searching for 'culture" in Seattle in 1974. He analyzes the nuances of Mary Kay Letourneau's trial and contemplates the persistence of rain and memory.
