“Truro summer resident David Paradis, founder of the literary journal Pequod, has penned a debut novel grounded in the peculiar environment of the Outer Cape, where summers bring 24-plus-hour days and winters, well, you do what you can to get by. In this world, we meet Henry, a loser by some definitions, but a survivor by others. When he meets Kelly — survivor herself of a bad marriage — all Henry’s odd habits come into sharper focus. Is there a future for these two?” —Cape Cod Times
