``This straightforward, hard-edged coming-of-age novel focuses on 22-year-old Billy Riley, an intelligent but undisciplined Marine veteran whose life has begun to parallel that of his unemployed, alcoholic Uncle Bubble,'' wrote PW . ``Firmly controlled and laced with wry humor, this engaging narrative is buoyed by strong, individualistic characters.''
