    Summary

    Summer in Milwaukee was not about to give up the ghost. The air crackled with heat, static electricity ready at any moment to burst into lightning, and Dana and Casey were sitting outdoors at their favorite burger joint. Casey was two beers in and feeling good. Dana was talking about the Eastern conference finals, because she had never been able to let go of anything in her life, punctuating her points with aggressive jabs of French fries.

    “Anyway,” she said, popping a fry into her mouth, “that’s what I said to Dan about it.”

    “I’m sure he listened attentively.” Casey tried to hide the smile that was struggling through.

    “He’s a good kid.” She took a drink of her soda. “Gets along with everybody. Kind of flighty, though.”

    Summary

    Dan takes a long drink of water. He thinks about the flowers Rebecca sent him. He thinks about Casey telling him he can do it alone. He thinks about a fresh start, maybe the first one he’s ever had.

    He thinks about Sam and what he might say if he could see Dan now, nearly thirty-one and no less confused than he was ten years ago.

    (Or, Dan and Casey from Spring 2000 to Winter 2002. From New York to LA and back again, and Dan finally finding his place. As told through six music-inspired vignettes.)

    Summary

    Dan celebrates the start of the new decade by getting himself a boyfriend. It isn’t the person he wants, but Dan figures pining over a married man who’s 3,000 miles away is the height of self-destructive tendencies, even by his standards.

    (Or, snapshots of Dan Rydell’s life between the ages twenty to twenty-four. From finishing college, moving to Dallas, and -- most, importantly -- having Casey by his side. As told through six music-inspired vignettes.)

    Summary

    Later, Dan will look back on that moment. He’ll tell himself he should’ve been firmer, should’ve knocked the thought completely out of Sam’s head. Should’ve tried harder to be the kind of brother Sam deserved, like David.

    Should’ve.

    (Or, snapshots of Dan Rydell’s life between the ages of fourteen to twenty. From high school to college, to losing Sam and finding Casey. As told through seven music-inspired vignettes.)

    Summary

    Dana took a deep breath and pressed her fingers to her temples. “Who started it?”

    “Nobody,” said Casey, at the same time as Dan said, “He did.”

    Casey shot Dan a sidelong glare and muttered, “Way to throw me under the bus, there, buddy.”

    “Maybe if you hadn’t started it,” Dan hissed back.

    Summary

    Dan Rydell drove to Los Angeles in the summer of 1988.

    It might have been a questionable idea. It might even, if one were to listen to his father, be a stupid idea. If one were to listen to Jacob Rydell, affectionately known to his intimates as Jay, one might think that blowing that kind of gas money is a waste, when the plane ticket is cheaper and faster, and it’s not like you need to bring much. What do you think you’re doing, having a adventure? This is a job, Danny.

    Dan did not think about that. The open road, with the sky arching beautifully above him, was a truly magnificent thing. He had his favorite tapes and a working cassette player. He mashed play without looking, and when he hit the end he’d swap it out, Simon le Bon’s voice thready against the roar of the pavement. Twelve hours a day of driving would get him there in under a week. There were parks and motels to sleep in when and if it became necessary. He chain-smoked when he started getting tired, juggling the cigarette lighter with the wheel, and kept going.

    Summary

    “So here’s the thing,” said Casey.

    Abby squinted at him. “You’re Casey McCall.”

    “That’s correct.”

    “You’re Danny’s partner.”

    He nodded, feeling stiff and awkward. “I was, yes.”

    Abby rocked back in her chair, contemplating him. “You should probably find a different therapist.”

    Summary

    Dan had been so bone-deep sure that he was going to have to leave Casey that he had, in effect, mentally reconciled himself to the idea. There was something to it, he was pretty sure, and he said so to Abby: something to the idea of reconciliation, something to smoothing over all the hollow, pitted scars in his soul with warm beach sand. He’d bake in the sun until all the regrets had baked out, like alcohol from a rum cake.

    “Don’t you mean rum balls?”

    “No, I’m pretty sure I mean cake.”

    Summary

    In 2004, a lot of things happened. That was how Dan had decided to think of it: A Lot of Things Happened. In some small way, that absolved him of the responsibility of keeping track of exactly which things had happened, because God, there were a lot of things and so very few of them were good.
