The vehicle, too, has obvious its proportion of mess ups. every one dent and ripped seam represents a pivotal second within the lives of others: from the boy who assembled it at an Indiana plant to all its resulting owners—a God-fearing guy who sells it whilst he sees a horny woman sprawled throughout its hood, a physician who can't dissociate it from his son's destiny, and a rancher's spouse who'd a lot fairly stay with out it for all of the background it carries.
After understanding one another for only an hour, Marcus and Maria choose to purchase the Buick jointly. As this remarkable novel follows the rocky paths of the Electra and its owners—both earlier and present—these strangers shape an unforeseen and eventually resilient alliance.
