The Cure was a little odd and obscure. It's about a man returning to his birth town in Maine, carrying the emotional baggage of his dead friend. The cause of his death? Alcohol. The worst part is that our main character is struggling with the same addiction. The oddness starts when he finds a note is a garbage can telling him about a cure for alcoholism. The cure, which is never described by the author, is enclosed within the envelope.
The story gets sleepy and meanders around several issues that aren't expanded upon. Then the plot just ends with a car crash. It's like the author couldn't think of anything better to do. It's probably his worst book.
However, if you're looking for an original plot structure and don't really care about issues, than this is the book for you.
