Jack's wife has disappeared. She was in the car when they stopped for gas, he knows that much.
He walked back from the counter, and then ? Jack can't remember. But Anne has gone. John Haskell's American Purgatorio is an extraordinary debut novel, haunting, comic and achingly poignant.
It's a road trip into the heart of a country and a man, a travelogue of loss and redemption, a Pilgrim's Progress for a godless world.
