  • Vacation


With his wife suspiciously absent in the evenings, the man, Myers, follows his unnamed spouse on her evening escapades and soon realizes that she is following the stranger, Gray, a former classmate of Myers whose own marriage has fallen apart. What follows is an unusual, unsettling, and wildly entertaining novel unlike any you’ve read in a long time.

With deadpan humor and skewed wordplay, Deb Olin Unferth weaves a mystery of hope and heartbreak.
