** A piercing and compassionate debut novel about the twisting ways in which the young atone for the sins of the old in small town America **

Robert Kelly and his wife Irene were a golden couple of the late 70s she an artist, he a businessman, each possessed by a dynamism that seemed to promise them a place in a new and vibrant age. But with two young boys to care for, Irene finds herself confined by the very things she d dreamed of having, and her painting ambitions atrophy as she struggles to invest meaning into her role as wife and mother. And Robert, pressured by Irene's demands and haunted by the failure he sees looming, risks the family name and business to pursue a can t-miss real estate scheme.

In "The Outer Cape" we revisit the fictional town of Wequaquet, the setting of his short fiction collection, We've Already Gone This Far and see Patrick Dacey's talent stretch and soar. He delivers a story of four people grappling with the ghost of infinite possibility, a book in which chasing the American dream and struggling to survive are one and the same. (TooFondOfBooks)
