‘He adjusted the speed on the cruise
control to an even sixty and stared out the window at the rows of cattails
growing on the side of the turnpike. Through their tawny, rowed communities he

drove past the city, further north, until he couldn’t wait any longer,
which turned out to be Massachusetts.’
