We know the men who populate Cul De Sac from our own neighborhoods and our own familiar fantasies of the American good life, yet in Scott Wrobel’s hands their faults and strange inner minds frighten and delight us. Here are middle-aged men who deal with parenting, marriage, and grief by untangling extension cords, organizing garages, stalking seasonal Eastern European service workers at family resorts, violating jars of mayonnaise, and sabotaging houses-for-sale to keep their neighborhood Caucasian. Cul De Sac is an honest and empathetic look behind the tailored lawns and powerwashed-perfect decks of a suburban community to its awkwardly humorous and sad reality—Cheeverland in a modern Midwestern suburb. Cul De Sac provokes, challenges, and invites nervous laughter.
