These inter-connected short stories follow Maggie Boylan, an addict in Appalachian Ohio, as she navigates both an underworld of crime and an official world of treatment and the courts. “Nothing is pretty in this world, but much is beautiful seen through Henson’s compassion for his characters and his clarity about generations wrecked by capitalism without conscience.” – George Ella Lyon.
