Over the Backyard Fence is an account of a man's search for his past among the relics of someone else's life. In the early 1990s, Edwin Billick is lost in his present situation. For him, nothing seems to connect. He appears to himself caught in a never-ending treadmill of "sameness." His days are simply pass-through, misty shadows of the same people, places, and conversations. Always the same outcomes confront him. His job is dull and made worse by the same uninteresting but necessary people. On the verge of microinsanity, he suddenly decides to return to his childhood place of birth. The suddenness of his decision takes him and his coworker by surprise. Once home, he finds more than what he sought and less than what drove him on this return journey to his past. Transfixed by his menacing backyard fence, he relives again the hated sameness, but this time the pain of the sensation is shared but not by him alone.
