ISBN 0-933598-26-2 trade paperback
Published by North Carolina Wesleyan College Press, 1991. 286 pp.
Contains stories and the essay “The Use of the Unconscious in Writing.”
Banks calls these stories “Frighteningly simple and direct, as accessible as a kick in the shins.”
Creeley says Rumaker's writing "has always a manner of exceptional caring for the general world despite the inexorable despair that confronts its persons."
