In this shattering novel, a man walks into a convenience store--which turns out to be precisely the wrong place at the wrong time. The near-death and seemingly arbitrary survival of Charles Connally are rendered with a realism, horror, and compassion that explore the strands of brutality running invisibly through his life, his wife's--and perhaps, that of the entire nation.
