This is a new and talented writer who has crafted here a sort of modern-day allegory for displacement and delusion. Disturbing at a very subliminal level, recalling the feeling that something troubling is just out of sight, lurking in the corner...

though it could have been edited down to 325 pages or so, the writing and the pace were terrific. It reinforces my belief in the creepiness of the suburbs and the risk of self-delusion we all skirt around. Loved the scene where the father is frightened by the 'middle-eastern' same-sex partner of his neighbor, but NOT so much the man in camo hunting deer in his backyard!!

Well written but from quite a futuristic negative view of the world.
