"Statistically speaking, it's damn near impossible to write a best-seller. It's also remarkably difficult to piss off an entire town. Overachiever that I am, I managed to accomplish both feats in one fell swoop. When it comes to alienation, I'm something of a prodigy."
Meet Joe Goffman, a young writer whose sizzling first novel savaged everyone in his hometown, then went on to become a blockbuster movie. Of course, Joe never planned on going home again - until nowà
Having just learned that his estranged father is in a coma, Joe returns home to find that the people of Bush Falls are in no mood to welcome him back. A senior citizen throws a milkshake in his face, a former classmate beats him up, and the local book club hurls copies of his book at his house. Everyone's a critic.
But while Bush Falls may not be pleased to see Joe, it becomes clear Joe needs Bush Falls. With the help of some old friends and plenty of enemies he revisits the past he thought he'd left behind forever, a past full of passion, betrayal and catastrophe. After seventeen years of running away, Joe is ready to face the music - and his childhood sweetheart - if he can survive the homecoming.
