Summary note:
"THE HOUSE ACROSS FROM THE DEAF SCHOOL, Michael Gills' third collection of short fiction, continues the life and times of Joey Harvell, whose stepfather, in 'Last Words on Lonoke,' gives him a .30-06, tells him not to aim at anything he doesn't want to kill, and 'that's pretty much it for [his] gun safety lessons.' Later, in 'What The Newly Dead Don't Know But Learn,' his uncle swims Joey and a group of fake cowboys across a creek on Camp Robinson, only a fisherman's trotline is stretched across the S-curve, and the result, like the book as a whole, is a hard fight there's no recovering from"--Provided by publisher.
