Two mysterious, bedraggled strangers appear in a small country town. They are fleeing trauma of which they are unable, or perhaps unwilling, to speak. The townspeople want answers. Before long, wary hospitality shifts to suspicion and fear, and the care of the men slides into appalling cruelty. A profound and unsettling novel about humanity and dignity and the ease with which we’re able to justify brutality.
