One summer night, beneath the Perseid meteor shower, 17-year-old Oliver Loving's hand makes a first furtive journey across a Navajo picnic blanket towards his classmate Rebekkah Sterling's. A few months later, Héctor Espina enters Bliss County Day School's gymnasium during homecoming and shoulders a hunting rifle. The 35 rounds he fires cut a levelling swathe through the past and future of Oliver, his family and the entire population of Bliss, Texas. For the next 9 years, Oliver is confined to a hospital bed. Conscious but totally paralysed, he plumbs the depths of his own imagination, a twilight netherworld of myth, in search of meaning.
