Angels and Electrons: A Sub-Suburb Tale
by Paul Hawkins
Set in the sub-suburbs, where trailer park and white-flight suburb rub elbows, this story rollicks across decades, from the 1980's to the present. An addled man tries to escape the shadow of his genius but despairing father only to find himself subjected to the same temptations to find the answers to life in a radio device designed to talk to angels or the dead. A fat, Faustian German opera.
