In this small gem of a novel, a thoughtful boy on the lip of adolescence struggles to make sense of the evil that resides in his small town. Told with brilliant, lyric push, this tale reveals the unconscious rush that childhood is, that nagging dream that still persists because it means something to the heart. At twelve, this boy floats quietly through his world, voyeur to the complexities that both bind and tear his seemingly placid community. He follows his father, a staunch Baptist, when he joins a strike at the town’s one plant, follows his mother, an Asian war bride, who wants most it seems to erase herself, tracks the mystery of a young prostitute he hopes can heal his older brother who is adrift after a tour in Vietnam.

Why do men and women cheat on each other? How do men really feel when their partners have sex with other men? What worries women more -- men who turn to other women for love or men who simply want sexual variety in their lives? Can the jealousy husbands and wives experience over real or imagined infidelities be cured? Should it be? In this surprising and engaging exploration of men's and women's darker passions, David Buss, acclaimed author of The Evolution of Desire, reveals that both men and women are actually designed for jealousy. Drawing on experiments, surveys, and interviews conducted in thirty-seven countries on six continents, as well as insights from recent discoveries in biology, anthropology, and psychology, Buss discovers that the evolutionary origins of our sexual desires still shape our passions today. According to Buss, more men than women want to have sex with multiple partners. Furthermore, women who cheat on their husbands do so when they are most likely to conceive, but have sex with their spouses when they are least likely to conceive. These findings show that evolutionary tendencies to acquire better genes through different partners still lurk beneath modern sexual behavior. To counteract these desires to stray -- and to strengthen the bonds between partners -- jealousy evolved as an early detection system of infidelity in the ancient and mysterious ritual of mating. Buss takes us on a fascinating journey through many cultures, from pre-historic to the present, to show the profound evolutionary effect jealousy has had on all of us. Only with a healthy balance of jealousy and trust can we be certain of a mate's commitment, devotion, and true love.

C'est dans les éternelles tensions entre amour et haine que se jouent les grandes batailles de l'Histoire. Ceci est particulièrement vrai des Etats-Unis d'Amérique, dont la jeune République s'est construite sur le sang des Indiens, s'est développée dans la violence du conflit vietnamien et a, dans un ultime soubresaut, tenté d'imposer au monde l'image de son pouvoir dans le trauma de l'Irak. Mais le regard des chercheurs autour de ce thème est celui d'amoureux de l'Amérique, de ses richesses culturelles et de ses contradictions. Toujours respectueux de cette grande nation, ils essaient de comprendre le pourquoi d'une telle répétition, sans juger les hommes mais sans complaisance aucune pour les politiciens qui, toujours, décident seuls du sort des peuples.
