When Johnny Fehr, a down-on-his-luck feed supply salesman, thinks about Lorraine, his lover, it’s like the Holy Spirit tickling his spine. But Johnny is already married to Charlene. If only he could be a better person and stop hurting the people he loves. In this richly layered novel, David Bergen depicts the small prairie town of Lesser, where everybody’s private moments become public knowledge.
