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 abandoned homes and the polluted river. Isaac is the smartest kid in town left behind to care for his sick father after his mother commits suicide and his sister Lee moves away. Now Isaac wants out too. Not even his best friend Billy Poe can stand in his way: broad-shouldered Billy always ready for a fight still living in his mother's trailer. Then on the very day of Isaac's leaving something happens that changes the friends' fates and tests the loyalties of their friendship and those of their lovers families and the town itself. Evoking John Steinbeck's novels of restless lives during the Great Depression American Rust is an extraordinarily moving novel about the bleak realities that battle our desire for transcendance and the power of love and friendship to redeem us.
