In Idaho Winter, the young title character is tormented by all who know him. When Idaho discovers that his miserable life is the creation of a cruel writer, he locks the author in a closet and takes control of the narrative. When the author emerges from the closet, he finds his story completely unrecognizable and sets out with a number of secondary characters to repair the novel.
