When Parker Sloane returns from a foray into third-world cash-smuggling to his childhood home in the woods of New England, it seems hes seeing his country and his blended stepfamily for the first time and finding both just as twitchy, desperate, paranoid and unpredictable as the underworld types he thought hed escaped. Before he can even unpack, Parker goes head-to-head with his relativeshis tyrannical stepfather, seething younger brother, newly evangelical mother, and his alluring younger half-sister Ritaand with the demons they never exorcised. Delicately but disastrously, Parker attempts to keep his family from imploding, unaware that they have their own plans for escape. The Moon in Deep Winter combines the dark comedy of the Coen brothers with the doomed lyricism of Denis Johnson, creating an airtight world of homicidal family dysfunction.
