Summary:
Winner of the Prairie Schooner Book Prize in Fiction, this collection of loosely connected tales returns readers to the American Northwest so finely observed and powerfully evoked in John Keeble's previous, celebrated works. Nocturnal America occupies a terrain at once familiar and strange, where homecoming and dislocation can coincide, and families can break apart or hone themselves on the hard edges of daily life. In these stories, Keeble populates what journalist Joel Garreau once called the "Empty Quarter" of North America with complex humanity. Life ranges vibrantly through these airy spaces, at times finding itself thrown up against the shifty terrors of political change and the antic scrim of culture.
