With works nominated for the Los Angeles Times Book Prize and the PEN/Robert W. Bingham Prize, David James Poissant has drawn comparisons to such literary masters as Anton Chekhov and Raymond Carver. From his critically acclaimed debut short-story collection The Heaven of Animals, "Amputee" explores the fragile intersection of love, longing, and loneliness. Estranged from both his family and his Mormon faith, Brig is searching for his neighbor's cat when he meets Lily, a high school student who looks eerily similar to his ex-wife. Captivated by Lily's dry sense of humor and gritty charisma, Brig isn't sure which hits him harder-the joint he smokes with her or the removal of her prosthetic arm.
