Wentworth, Ohio: a small friendly town where the Carver children bicker over sweets in the E-Z shop and writer Johnny Marinville is the only resident who minds his own business. On Poplar Street, apart from the impending storm, it's just a normal summer's day - with Frisbees flying, lawn mowers humming and barbeques grilling.
As the paperboy makes his round, he is unaware of the chrome red van idling up the hill . . . Soon the residents will be caught up in a game of wills as the regulators arrive in force to face a child whose powers of expression are just awakening. If you like THE REGULATORS, don't miss DESPERATION, written as an unidentical pair.
