Stories of the afterlife, the rugged Northwest, and the early days of Mormonismby a ferociously imaginative new writer This stunning debut story collection by an acclaimed McSweeney'sand Tin Housecontributor will satisfy fans of such short-fiction masters as Denis Johnson and George Saunders, as well as those readers fascinated by the Mormon faithand those who enjoyed the show Big Loveand the musical The Book of Mormon. "The First Several Hundred Years Following My Death" is a comic vision of the afterlife in which everyone in heaven is the age they were when they dieda fantasy both profound and absurd. In the tough, tender "About as Fast as This Car Can Go," a teenager gets introduced to crime after his father is released from jail, and in "Winter Elders," Mormon missionaries pursue a man who has left the foldwith gruesome results. In the concluding triptych, Vestal takes on the legends and legacy of Mormonism. "Diviner," the final piece, is an indelible portrait of the young Joseph Smith, in the days when he was not yet the founder of the Mormon faith but a man hired to find buried treasure.
