Robert and Darla Quinlan are tenured at Florida State University. Their marriage, forged in the fervor of anti-Vietnam War protests now bears the fractures of time, and the couple is trapped in an existence of morning coffee and solitary jogging and separate offices. The divisions in Robert's own family are more apparent: he has almost no relationship with his brother Jimmy, who became estranged from the family as the Vietnam War intensified. Their father, a veteran of WWII, is coming to the end of his life, and aftershocks of war ripple across their lives once again when Jimmy refuses to appear at his father's bedside.

The spare but ultimately exhausting detail is deadly. This is an example of writing that enamours university writing classes and leaves lovers of stories disappointed.
