Swede Levoy, a legendary high school athlete, marries a former Miss New Jersey, inherits his father's glove factory, and moves into a stone house in an idyllic hamlet. In 1968, his American luck deserts him.

And overnight Swede is wrenched out of the longed-for American pastoral and into the indigenous American berserk
