From the National Book Award–finalist: This “brilliant” story collection exploring the lives of dispossessed Americans is “one of his best achievements” (The Washington Post).

... decibel ( dB ) equals one quantum of air pressure hitting the outer ear ; thus an increase in decibels means an increase in pressure on the eardrum . Zero dB means not a total absence of pressure waves but the lowest sound audible , on ...
