Description


Ten years ago, Tom Drury's groundbreaking debut, "The End of Vandalism, " was serialized in "The New Yorker, " was compared to the work of Sherwood Anderson and William Faulkner by "USA Today, " and was named a "Best Book of the Year" in multiple publications. Now, appearing simultaneously with his first new novel in six years, Drury's debut is back in print.
Welcome to Grouse County a fictional Midwest that is at once familiar and amusingly eccentric where a thief vacuums the church before stealing the chalice, a lonely woman paints her toenails in a drafty farmhouse, and a sleepless man watches his restless bride scatter their bills beneath the stars. At the heart of "The End of Vandalism" is an unforgettable love triangle set off by a crime: Sheriff Dan Norman arrests Tiny Darling for vandalizing an antivandalism dance and then marries the culprit's ex-wife Louise. So Tiny loses Louise, Louise loses her sense of self, and the three find themselves on an epic journey.
At turns hilarious and heart-breaking, "The End of Vandalism" is a radiant novel about the beauty and ache of modern life.
