Overrun with paranoia, teenage angst, and religious zeal in the massacres wake, this sleepy suburban neighborhood declares its saints, brands its demons, and moves on. But for a handful of people still reeling from that horrific day, life remains permanently derailed. Four dramatically different characters tell their stories: Cheryl, who calmly narrates her own death- Jason, the boy no one knew was her husband, still marooned ten years later by his loss- Heather, the woman trying to love the shattered Jason- and Jasons father, Reg, whose rigid religiosity has separated him from nearly everyone he loves. Hey Nostradamus! is an unforgettable portrait of people wrestling with spirituality and with sorrow and its acceptance.
