Billy Brent and Alice Stephens are star-crossed like all great lovers. Their need for each other drives them from Istanbul to Miami, Venice to Mexico, with existential breaks and jail time in between. After run-ins with boy preachers, serial killers, lonely women, sea-faring criminals, and, of course, the Law, Billy and Alice find themselves lost deep in a desert wilderness, searching for a way forward, finding that sometimes the trail simply forks. Dark, funny, smart—and, surprisingly, hopelessly romantic—Three Delays is an ambitious, often satiric novel by one of our great American writers.
