A short story from James Lee Burke's story collection, Jesus Out to Sea. Burke is one of the country's most acclaimed and popular novelists. He elegantly marries his flair for gripping storytelling with an urbane writing style and complex, fascinating character portraits. The backdrop of the hurricane-ravaged Gulf Coast proves to be a versatile setting for Burke's stories, which cover the scope of the human experience, from love and sex to domestic abuse, to war and death and friendship.
