Like You'd Understand, Anyway
StoriesBook - 2007 | 1st ed
"Like You'd Understand, Anyway reaches from Chernobyl to Bridgeport, with a host of narrators. Among them: a middle-aged Aeschylus at Marathon, still vying for parental approval. A maddeningly indefatigable Victorian explorer hauling his expedition, whaleboat and all, through the Great Australian Desert in midsummer. The first woman in space and her cosmonaut lover, caught in the star-crossed orbits of their joint mission. Two Texas high school football players at the top of their food chain, soliciting their fathers' attention by leveling everything before them on the field. And the rational and compassionate chief executioner of Paris, whose occupation, during the height of the Terror, eats away at all he holds dear."--BOOK JACKET.
