Benjamin Percy's unforgettable stories have been winning wide acclaim, including the Plimpton Prize from the Paris Review and selection for Best American Short Stories. Here is the United States of today. The young men in these breathless stories do the unthinkable to prove to themselves - to everyone - that they are strong enough to face the heartbreak in this world. The war in Iraq empties the small town of Tumalo, Oregon, of men - of fathers - leaving their sons to fight among themselves. There's a bear on the loose, a house with a basement that opens up into a cave, a nuclear meltdown that renders the Pacific Northwest a contemporary Wild West. Refresh, Refresh is a bold, fiery collection for our times.
