619 pages9 hours


A poignant novel of friendship, loss and the dreams that drive us, 13 Miles from Gilman, Illinois (And It Looks like Rain) is a story of roads not taken, choices made and destinies revealed. Michael and David are college friends with promising futures, but before the year ends, one will have fled the country in the face of terrible loss, leaving the other to question his place in the world and his own plans for his life. From a fallow cornfield in the Midwest to the turquoise waters of the Caribbean, the book takes us on a journey through the lives of these two markedly different, but somehow not divergent lives, until one tragic – and morbidly comic – accident. A moving, sometimes funny but always intimate portrait of a man learning that an ordinary life – if lived well – is an adventure all its own.
