Synopsis / Contents:

In Rosburg, Oregon, a bartender named Guthrie Wagner responds to an inner prompting by quitting his job, walking out of town, and heading east, over the Cascades.

In Fort Wayne, Indiana, a woman named Sara Duskin realizes she’s losing her eyesight; her inner vision leads her to board a series of buses, taking her in turn to Chicago and Salt Lake City and Portland.

In Littleton, Colorado, a real-estate investor named Mark Adlon lures a clerk into the rear section of a convenience store, knocks her out with a blow to the head, then waits for her to regain consciousness before strangling her.

These and other lives connect and collide in a rich narrative that is magical and mystical and vividly real.
