With all the Russell Banks novels making it to the big screen, you'd think the author of The Sweet Hereafter might try his hand at screenwriting. In Affliction, the suffering soul is Wade Whitehouse, a New Hampshire sheriff with nothing to show for his life but a beer belly and memories of high school popularity. Wade's articulate and equally scarred brother narrates the story of the sheriff's descent into the criminal.
