Summary "THE HOUSE ACROSS FROM THE DEAF SCHOOL, Michael Gills' third collection of short fiction, continues the life and times of Joey Harvell, whose stepfather, in 'Last Words on Lonoke, ' gives him a .30-06, tells him not to aim at anything he doesn't want to kill, and 'that's pretty much it for [his] gun safety lessons.' Later, in 'What The Newly Dead Don't Know But Learn, ' his uncle swims Joey and a group of fake cowboys across a creek on Camp Robinson, only a fisherman's trotline is stretched across the S-curve, and the result, like the book as a whole, is a hard fight there's no recovering from"--Provided by publisher.
