About the book: From the Dust Bowl to The Magic Kingdom, the Rust Belt to the casinos of Atlantic City, EXPOSURE captures the slow- burn dramas of regret and desire that smolder across America. A grieving photographer blurs time with long exposures and darkroom fumes, inhaled hard. An abused young man searches the woods for abandoned children raised by wolves. A recovering addict takes his grown daughters on a Disney vacation, two decades too late. Collecting layered long stories and lyrical flash fictions, EXPOSURE presents a poignant and formally surprising look at longing, family bonds, and the ever- human effort to reconcile our pasts with our hopes for the future. Evocative and wryly funny, EXPOSURE marks the debut of a gifted and sensitive writer.
