Summary
There's a bar at the crossroads on the way out of town. Or the way in, depending on whether you're coming or going. Marcie and her husband have run it for years. They had children once, but not any more. After thirty years of marriage, there aren't many secrets left. Couples often tell themselves that, although it's not always true. Arlene appeared in the bar one day not long before Franky Albertino came back, thinking she'd find someone she'd once known, looking for a man named Jack. Franky was hoping that people might have forgotten the mess he left the first time around. Both of them were wrong. Women were always Franky's problem. Women and money. What Arlene's problem is isn't clear. It's obvious she has a history, but then which of us doesn't? As Arlene gets closer to finding Jack - her father? Her lover? - the bar becomes a scene of a great unravelling; secrets buried a lifetime ago are dragged into the light. In Things We Nearly Knew, Jim Powell invites us to consider how much we know about the ones we love and finally asks: would you want to know the truth?
