In 'Good Trouble,' the fascinating new story collection from Joseph O'Neil, author of Netherland, characters are forced to discover exactly who they are, and who they can never quite be. There's Rob, who swears he is a wholesome and dependable member of society, but can't scrape together a character reference to prove that's the case. And Jayne, who has no choice but to investigate the voice downstairs while her husband lies glued to the bed with fear. A mother tries to find where she fits into her son's new life of semi-soft rind-washed cheeses, and a poet tries to fathom what makes a poet. Do you have to write good stuff? Do you even have to write poetry?
