When Mills Chevern, a young vagabond with a questionable history, rolls into the small and isolated Long Island town of Orient, some of the locals are suspicious. Others take a liking to him. Then the neighborhood handyman turns up dead and an unidentifiable beast washes up on the beach. Christopher Bollen’s new novel, Orient, explores these mysteries.
