Unable to climb stairs or even go to the bathroom by himself, Craig lives his life out the family living room. From which he can only watch as his family's resentment grows, and his friends move through the rituals of boyhood without him.
Enter Wayne; Craig's charismatic uncle, fresh out of the Navy. Wayne's kindness and consideration endear him to the boy immediately. But as Wayne is gradually sucked back into rural the life he left behind. He and Craig find themselves caught in a web of shame and deceit which threatens to destroy them all.
Full of symbolism and vivid characters, Nebraska is an excellent story, and exceptionally well written. Fair warning though, this is not a happy go lucky tale. If quality literature is what you're after, this one's for you. If your tastes lean more toward lighter side, you should probably look elsewhere.
