Summary
Set in a beautiful but economically devastated Pennsylvania steel town, American Rust is a novel of the lost American dream and the desperation; as well as the acts of friendship, loyalty, and love, that arises from its loss. From local bars to trainyards to prison, it is the story of two young men, bound to the town by family, responsibility, inertia, and the beauty around them, who dream of a future beyond the factories and abandoned homes. Left alone to care for his aging father after his mother commits suicide and his sister escapes to Yale, Isaac English longs for a life beyond his hometown. But when he finally sets out to leave for good, accompanied by his temperamental best friend, former high school football star Billy Poe, they are caught up in a terrible act of violence that changes their lives forever. This novel takes us into the contemporary American heartland at a moment of profound unrest and uncertainty about the future. It is a dark novel about the bleak realities that battle our desire for transcendence and of the power of love and friendship to redeem us.
