Summary
Chronicles ordinary people achieving vivid extrasensory perception while under extreme pain. People with superhuman abilities are resilient in subtle and startling ways. The characters hurl themselves toward the inevitable fates they might rather wish away. Fragile symbols for things such as race, sexuality, and love are lifted, decorated, and exposed to scrutiny and awe like so many ruins of our imagination
