Albert Cobb was going to be a farmer, so his Army buddies called him "Plowboy". One buddy, Larry Doyle now dying, has come for a last visit hoping to content himself that he did one good deed: saving Albert's life during a wartime scrimmage. He finds a man who has failed at farming and everything else, including marriage. With a disabled child, deceived by his wife and his own beliefs, Albert's attempts to deceive Larry only make the deception more evident, leaving him alone with his own self-delusions. By the author of the Pulitzer Prize-winning The Subject Was Roses.
