Read full description of the books:



Set along Philadelphias Schuylkill River, The Ambidextrist crafts a detailed portrayal of the transient and disenfranchised in America. The novel follows Scott, a lonely drifter who supports himself as a medical test subject as he seeks affection, respect, and love from the inhabitants of this desolate place. Full of false confidence, he struggles to control his interactions with those he meets a homeless man who harbors a secret, a group of adolescent boys, an airline attendant who becomes the object of Scotts affection. From the beginning to the stunning climax of this story, Peter Rock shows us life on Americas margins like no author today. In the story of Scotts search for connection, Rock has created a story and hero for our time. Always theres a thrill in Rocks prose of the weird and inscrutably creepy. The Village Voice
