In Responsible Adults, farms fail, families break apart, and work is hard to come by. The characters in Patricia Ann McNair's fictional Midwestern towns are fueled by grief and hope, loss and desire. A stepfather attacks a neighbor boy for exposing a shameful secret to his stepdaughter. A pregnant, undocumented young woman brings new life to a failing church. A mother uses her reluctant adolescent daughter as a model for her art photography. What happens when responsible adults are anything but responsible people? When they are at best, irresponsible, and at worst, dangerous?
