J.J. Walsh and Tony 'El Greco' Papadakis are inseparable. Smoking Kents out on an abandoned cannery dock and watching gulls sway on rusting buoys, they dream of adventure.
Set in small-town New Jersey in the 1960s, Dust follows the boys through the dry heat of their formative years. They face religious
piety, sex, tragedy, and ultimately the myriad things that combine to make life what it is for the two friends - a great adventure. But it's a road trip through the heart of southern America with J.J.'s father, that reveals a darker side to life.
Their story unfolds around the honest and frequently irreverent observations of two young people trying to grow up fast in a world that is at times confusing, and at others seen with a clarity only the young may possess.

"This remarkable debut evokes the mythic America of John Cheever, Annie Dillard's Maytrees and Garrison Keillor's Lake Wobegon" - John Gill
