"What would you do if you were driving on the highway with your two daughters and the goons you had noticed with only passing irritation shadowing you in the next lane started shooting? And what would you do once you realized that one of the girls - your beautiful child - lay silent and unconscious, dying of her wounds? This terrible moment when what is literally unimaginable becomes, even for an instant, an inescapable, horrific reality serves as the mainspring for a series of eight interrelated narratives that set about exploring not only the nature and consequences of violence - both real and imagined - but also the richly textured mind and imagination of a representative modern man. A stylistic tour de force, a hypnotic, multifaceted vision of American mayhem, Interstate is also a paean to the visceral truth that a parent's greatest love is for his child. It is an unforgettable reading experience."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc. All Rights Reserved
