AbstractThis novel is about guilt, blame, truth, reconciliation, jazz, and goats. When we first meet them, the two main characters, Mia and Cassie, are grieving the loss of another character, Sam, to an act of random violence. Each bears some measure of indirect guilt in relation to Sam"s death, and each finds ways to avoid confronting it. Herein lies the seed of the book"s main theme: frustrated catharsis.
