From babysitter to bus ticket salesman, construction worker to cult leader, the residents of New Hope chase their dreams and suffer their disappointments against the subtle backdrop of a Midwestern landscape. In the manner of the Pulitzer Prize winning Olive Kitteridge, and the iconic Winesburg, Ohio, Patricia Ann McNair's The Temple of Air links the lives and stories of a place and its people through tragedy and consequence, blind faith and redemption. Spanning three decades, these fine-tuned stories present a portrait of working class Americans whose lives initially intersect when a tragic accident takes place during a summer carnival. The town's residents struggle under the weight of war, natural disaster, illness, grief and greed even as they enjoy the comforts of solace and friendship, sex and love, ice cream and the comics you find wrapped around bubblegum. Daily life in New Hope can be as harsh as it can be magical, particularly when a storm kicks up and makes things reel. Yet even as a storm looms on the Midwestern horizon, Nova, Sky, Hoof, Michael and the rest find shelter in New Hope. Unapologetically in your face, these tales dig into your subconscious and leave you haunted.
