Suffused with masculine tenderness, 'Searching For Intruders' is a haunting and transcendent collection novel-in-stories from a gifted new voice in fiction.
This is the astonishing assured debut collection of interconnected stories from a young and amazingly gifted new voice in fiction. Rendered in subtle, precise prose, 'Searching For Intruders' chronicles the evolving self-awareness of its rural Pennsylvania narrator, Wilson Hues.
Hues is the hapless drifter who manages to also find himself, in strange moments of illumination, obsessed with the consequences of his own action, or inaction. He is the product of a dysfunctionally masculine and violent family and subculture and memories from that past are assaulting his consciousness.
The memory flashes appear as vignettes between the interconnected stories and they gradually expose to Hues, and to the reader, the pressure they exert on his adult life.
