Assembled here are stories new and old, spanning from 1955 to today. Meet the death-defying motorcycle trick riders in the carnival s Devil s Tub, a man who keeps an alligator in his bathtub, a Chinese laundryman in search of love at Coney Island, a frontiersman who saves himself from being mauled by a grizzly bear by hiding in a beaver house, three carnies looking for trouble at a rodeo, a washed-out boxer trying to hang onto his career, and dozens of other rich characters. From the crammed and gritty streets of New York City to the bristling wilderness of the Old West, Hoagland s characters pine, ache, observe, love, learn, and live in such precisely rendered stories that we are transported into each of their peculiar worlds."
