Fiction. California Interest. Set in the new American West, the stories in REPAIRABLE MEN look at the small towns and rural farms where families stay for generations, newcomers never quite feel at home, and expectation and judgment are country neighbors. Trapped by dead-end work, hostile relatives, and the troubling legacies of their forebears, John Carr Walker's characters are caught in the turmoil of seeking escape, forgiveness, and redemption.
