Description
Benjamin Benjamin has lost his wife, his family, his home, and his livelihood. With few options left he enrolls in a night class, the Fundamentals of Caregiving, where he is instructed in the art of inserting catheters and avoiding liability, and taught how to keep physical and emotional distance between client and provider. None of this, however, prepares him for his assignment to Trevor, a fiercely stubborn, sexually frustrated adolescent in the advanced stages of muscular dystrophy, who has an ax to grind with the world at large. Yet the relationship between Trev and Ben evolves into camaraderie, and the professional boundaries between patient and caregiver begin to blur as they embark on a road trip to visit Trev's ailing father. The author of West of Here and All About Lulu, which won the Washington State Book Award, follows this unlikely pair on an odyssey of must-see roadside attractions, a birth, two arrests, a freakish dust storm, and a 600-mile cat-and-mouse pursuit by a mysterious brown Buick Skylark.

"Jonathan Evison is a gifted raconteur with a wicked sense of humor and an unflagging empathy for humankind in all its sad, foible-filled magnificence."—Patrick deWitt
