Abbott's community is pure Americana, a wild world inhabited by gloriously street-smart smartasses: overeducated, underemployed men mourning for the confident women who have left them - or have they? - but knowing that equally confident women are just around the corner - or are they? His urgent, maximalist style allows their exhilarating voices to be heard and remembered.
