Content descriptions

Bibliography, etc. Note: Includes bibliographical references.
Summary, etc.: The Road Through the Wall explores the secret longings, petty hatreds and ultimate terrors that lurk behind the manicured lawns and picture-perfect domestic facades of a California suburb. In Hangsaman, precocious Natalie Waite grows increasingly dependent on a friend who may or may not be imaginary. The Bird's Nest pits four unforgettable characters against each other in a battle for control: the shy, migraine-prone young officer worker Elizabeth versus Elizabeth's other multiple personalities. In the Sundial, the eccentric Halloran clan, gathered at the family manse for a funeral, becomes convinced that the world is about to end and that only those who remain within the house will be saved!
