Under The Small Lights

by John Cotter
Miami University Press, 2010

In the spirit of the Beats, our featured novel for September follows a group of listless young people as they sleep around, drink too much, and strive to find something more. From the back: 

Jack wants Corinna, Star wants Jack, Paul wants money, Jack and Bill want greatness. Experimental theater, the geography of Walden Pond, and the psychology of erotic thrillers converge in this lyrical, funny drama about the doubtful possibility of collective love and the painful experiences which, having endured them, we wouldn’t be without.
