High Lonesome is a darkly comic, fiercely tragic, and strikingly original odyssey into American life. This collection by the author of Airships and Bats Out of Hell explores lost moments in time with intensity, emotion, and an eye to the past. In "Uncle High Lonesome," a young man recalls his Uncle Peter, whose even temper was marred only by his drinking binges, which would unleash moments of rage hinting at his much deeper distress. Fishing is transformed into a life-altering, almost mystical event in "A Creature in the Bay of St. Louis," when a huge fish caught on a line threatens to pull a young boy, and his entire world with him, underwater and out to sea. And in "Snerd and Niggero," a deep friendship between two men is inspired by the loss of a woman they both loved, a woman who was mistress to one and wife to the other. Viewed through memory and time's distance, Hannah's characters are brightly illuminated figures from a lost time, whose occassionally bleak lives are still uncommonly true.

Runyon settled down and became a sheriff. Considine took up robbing banks. Now Considine is planning a raid on the bank at Obaro, a plan that will pit him against Runyon . . . and lead to riches or suicide.

Suddenly Considine must choose between revenge and redemption—and either choice could be the last one he makes. From the Paperback edition.

This updating of our previous title, The Point Where All Things Meet, which Tom Andrews edited in 1994, selects from the contents of that earlier book and adds many new essays that have appeared in the interim. The result is a complex and generous survey of Charles Wright's "trilogy of trilogies," the sweeping project encompassed in the selected volumes comprised by Country Music (1982), The World of the Ten Thousand Things (1990), and Negative Blue (2000).
