Pulitzer Prize and National Book Award finalist Adam Haslett's debut short story collection brilliantly evokes the complex angst of mental illness. When Frank shows up unexpectedly at his son Graham's apartment, he encounters Graham's gay partner. Undeterred by this surprise, Frank finds his creative muse inspired by the father-son reunion and flits from one manic high to the next. But he is saddened to learn that his son uses drugs to suppress the "genius" he has inherited.
