Like his bestselling Kramer vs. Kramer, Corman's new novel is a story of a "perfect family" in a crisis right from the headlines. The story of a woman's rape and its powerful efects on the members of her family marks Corman's return to the world of families we recognize, giving a realistic view of how tragedy changes people and their values irrevocably.
