Description
After doing time for a liaison with an underage girl, the Kid is forbidden to live within 2500 feet of anywhere children might gather, in this morally complex novel by the author of The Sweet Hereafter and Rule of the Bone. Barely beyond childhood himself, he is in many ways an innocent, trapped by impulses and choices he struggles to comprehend. Soon he meets the Professor, a man who has built his own life on secrets and lies. The two men forge a tentative partnership, but when the Professor's past resurfaces, the Kid must reconsider all he has come to believe, and make a fateful choice in a new kind of moral decision. Banks explores the zeitgeist of a troubled society where zero tolerance has erased any hope of subtlety and compassion—a society where isolating the offender has perhaps created a new kind of victim.

"Banks's enormous gamble in both plot and character pays off handsomely.... By the end, Kafka is rubbing elbows with Robert Ludlum, and Banks has mounted a thrilling defense of the novel's place in contemporary culture."—The New Yorker
