All Back Full, the new novel from Robert Lopez, charts one day in a marriage at once usual and unusual, exploring what we say to each other when we say nothing, and the ways we speak to each other without words. Act One: At a kitchen table, a husband and wife discuss the news, nudists, and lie to each other about the ways they no longer connect. Act Two: At a kitchen table, a man and his friend discuss the weather, the state of public transportation, and lie to each other for the sake of something to say. Act Three: At a kitchen table, three people discuss, mostly, nothing, and watch the threads unravel as their lives come apart at the seams. All Back Full is a genre-defying hybrid that melds the depth of the novel with the honesty of the stage.
