As winter deepens in Pollard, Illinois, agoraphobe Francis Falbo is holed up in his attic apartment, recovering from a series of traumas: his mother's death, his wife's desertion, and his once-ascendant rock band's break-up. Francis hasn't shaved in months and hasn't changed out of his bathrobe for nine days. All he has left is his childhood home, whose remaining rooms he rents to a cast of eccentric tenants. Francis becomes increasingly entangled in their lives, with results that are disastrous, hysterical, and ultimately healing. KNOW YOUR BEHOLDER is an exploration of adulthood gone awry, a novel about what we do when our lives have crumbled and we must begin anew.
