Growing up outside a dying coal town, a boy struggles to understand what it means to be a man while wrestling with the violence and intimacies of his disjointed family.

“And as I chopped, my mind often rested on a whispering godlike It. Maybe that same It who whispered to cells when to split into heartbeats. An It whom I wrote into the crevices of my story to understand the teacher, the cold, and my family—especially Pa and Cherry Mae.”
