House of Sand and Fog by Andre Dubus III

House of Sand and Fog - Andre Dubus III

Other than the mistakes on local phrases (Frisco? Referring to highways with their names rather than numbers?), this book was a really compelling read. I wasn't happy with how it turned out, but I enjoyed it for the most part.
