Jane Gillooly is an exotic dancer in Las Vegas with some very unusual family history in Liza Wieland's (You Can Sleep While I Drive) Bombshell. Once Jane's father told her, ""I'm falling out of the world."" Years later, her stepbrother, Charlie, comes to town with a revelation: he is convinced that her father is the Unabomber and one of his victims was Charlie's own wife. All three take turns narrating, shining lights into the dark corners of the human mind and soul in their search for understanding. Reflective, poetic and dreamlike, this powerful novel boasts blurbs from the likes of Madison Smartt Bell.
