But Kinsella's new novel, Box Socials, is easily the best book of his career. Set in the small towns, ball fields, barns and bedrooms of Alberta, Canada, and populated by some of the quirkiest, rowdiest, hottest-blooded folks in fiction, Box Socials paints a brilliantly comic, full-color portrait of North American life in the s/5().   In the title story, "Box Social," for example, the female protagonist, not quite yet an adult, is depicted silently and caringly decorating a shoe box, until it resembles a "fairy coffin," in which she delivers a gruesome gift to a man who date-raped her and left her pregnant: the body of a stillborn child.
