From snapshots of his first grade and freshman years, the reader follows Harry through a life equally divided between abstract ideals and abuse, the purging brutality of football and artistic expression, cruelty and compassion, to his adulthood in the Arizona desert. There he attempts to make peace between the warring sides of his personality and find through his relationship with one woman the capacity to connect to those things greater than ourselves, the first of which is love.
