"Denis Johnson is an artist. He writes with a natural authority, and there is real music in his prose."?Mona Simpson, The New York Times Book Review

In the bleak of November, Lenny English drifts into the Cape Cod resort of Provincetown. Recovering from a recent suicide attempt, his soul suspended in its own off-season, he takes a job as a third-shift disk jockey, with a little private detective work on the side for his boss. As Lenny falls in love with a beautiful young local, a woman whose sexual orientation should preclude the affair, he soon begins his first assignment, a search for a missing painter whose personal history seems to mirror his own. In pursuit of the artist?and love, and redemption?Lenny will resort to great and desperate measures to revive himself, and his faith in the world.
