Blackwell North Amer
Step into Lee's Machine Shop and meet Gilman Lee, infamous for his blues guitar, bootleg whiskey, and lovemaking. If you're a friend, he'll roll out the good times. If you're an enemy, he'll bite your ears off. Gilman dazzles nearly everyone except Gemma Collet, a cynical young woman who wrote her own ten commandments and follows them.
Why, suddenly, is the whole world knocking on the door of Pick, Kentucky? It's in a county so remote that there are no craft shops, yogurt huts, or fast-food restaurants. Entering the region is like being swallowed by a living thing: a dinosaur or some other prehistoric animal that has evolved into a geographical area for reasons of self-preservation.
Sent inland by the ocean's waves, Tom Jett, a philosopher from California, lands in Pick when his car breaks down. Frank Denton sneaks into town, bringing his grim search for Rosalie Wilson, one of Pick's own, a woman blessed with green eyes and a torch singer's voice. Meanwhile, the Conroy Coal Company is there to do what it's done since time immemorial - persuade people to sign coal leases that seldom pay off.
