In Hunts in Dreams - a follow-up to his acclaimed debut The End of Vandalism - Tom Drury returns to the Midwest to spend a life-changing autumn weekend in the company of a family whose members all want something without knowing how to get it: for Charles (a.k.a. `Tiny`) it`s an heirloom shotgun; for his wife, Joan, the imaginative life she once knew; for their young son, Micah, a sense of the limits of his world (in search of which he prowls the empty streets at night); and for Joan`s daughter, Lyris, a stable base from which to begin to grow up.
Original but never showy, full of heart yet not sentimental, and funny in ways that call for a new adjective, Hunts in Dreams is a remarkable, entirely delightful novel from a modern master.
