“The best fiction writer’s short story in AmericaThe bestJohn Irving Nathan Hill’s brilliant debut takes the reader to rural communities in the Midwest of the 1960s, to New York during Occupy Wall Street; from Chicago in 1968 to the war in Norway: the home of the mysterious Nix.Responding to Samuel: the writer’s impasse, bored teacher in a local college, obsessive-compulsive disorder-player online video gamesHe hasn’t seen his mother, Faye, for decades, not since she abandoned his family when he was a boy.Now she has reappeared, having committed an absurdly politically motivated crime that electrifies evening news, seduces the Internet, and ignites a division of America.The media portrays Faye as a radical hippie with a sordid past, but as far as Samuel knows, her mother was an ordinary girl who married her high school sweetheart.Is her mother’s version true?Two facts are certain: she faces serious charges, and she needs Samuel.As Samuel begins to dig his mother and country – the story, he will find unexpectedly that he has to rethink everything he ever knew about her – a woman with an epic story of her own, a story she kept hidden from the world.
