Book excerpt: Winner of the 2020 Dashiell Hammett Award for Literary Excellence in Crime Writing Acclaimed author and "remarkably gifted storyteller" (The Charlotte Observer) David Joy returns with a fierce and tender tale of a father, an addict, a lawman, and the explosive events that come to unite them. When his addict son gets in deep with his dealer, it takes everything Raymond Mathis has to bail him out of trouble one last time. Frustrated by the slow pace and limitations of the law, Raymond decides to take matters into his own hands. After a workplace accident left him out of a job and in pain, Denny Rattler has spent years chasing his next high. He supports his habit through careful theft, following strict rules that keep him under the radar and out of jail. But when faced with opportunities too easy to resist, Denny makes two choices that change everything. For months, the DEA has been chasing the drug supply in the mountains to no avail, when a lead--just one word--sets one agent on a path to crack the case wide open . . . but he'll need help from the most unexpected quarter. As chance brings together these men from different sides of a relentless epidemic, each may come to find that his opportunity for redemption lies with the others.

Book excerpt: From award-winning writer David Joy comes a searing new novel about the cracks that form in a small North Carolina community and the evils that unfurl from its center. Toya Gardner, a young Black artist from Atlanta, has returned to her ancestral home in the North Carolina mountains to trace her family history and complete her graduate thesis. But when she encounters a still-standing Confederate monument in the heart of town, she sets her sights on something bigger. Meanwhile, local deputies find a man sleeping in the back of a station wagon and believe him to be nothing more than some slack-jawed drifter. Yet a search of the man’s vehicle reveals that he is a high-ranking member of the Klan, and the uncovering of a notebook filled with local names threatens to turn the mountain on end. After two horrific crimes split the county apart, every soul must wrestle with deep and unspoken secrets that stretch back for generations. Those We Thought We Knew is an urgent unraveling of the dark underbelly of a community. Richly drawn and bracingly honest, it asks what happens when the people you’ve always known turn out to be monsters, what do you do when everything you ever believed crumbles away?

Download or read book Kindred and Related Spirits written by John Muir and published by . This book was released on 2001 with total page 448 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: "Jeanne C. Carr was thirty-five years old, wife of a chemistry professor, and a mother of four boys when she first met John Muir in 1860. It was clear to her that Muir, a twenty-two year-old inventor, was a young man of remarkable talents and potential, and by the time he left the University of Wisconsin three years later, a lifelong friendship had been initiated between Carr and Muir." "While Muir's letters to Carr were published in 1915 and have enjoyed an illustrious history, Carr's letters to Muir remained unpublished, and the extent of Carr's influence on her friend over the next three decades, unappreciated. As this researched assemblage of the correspondence attests, Muir's destiny owed no small debt to Carr. She doted on and comforted Muir, offering him understanding and advice in addition to abiding affection. She urged Muir to visit Yosemite where his life's work began, introduced him to influential people, including Ralph Waldo Emerson, and badgered him to publish his work. Their friendship, characterized by an ecstatic spiritual celebration of the natural world, nurtured and sustained Muir from his obscure beginnings as an amateur botanist and continued as he grew into one of the most influential preservationists and natural historians of all time."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.

Download or read book Sangre Road written by David Tromblay and published by Shotgun Honey Books. This book was released on 2022-04-14 with total page 178 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Introducing Moses Kincaid, an ornery, brazen, and possibly punch-drunk bounty hunter who must track down a skip trace into rural Oklahoma, circa summer 1995. Follow along as he comes up against bikers, prison peckerwoods, zombies, pro-midget wrestlers, holes up in no-tell motels and greasy-spoon diners, and gets gifted mouthful after mouthful of heavy-duty pain pills for the bumps and bruises he earns along the way!Praise for SANGRE ROAD: "David Tromblay has created a violent and wistful elegy to small-town America that cuts as sharp as an ice pick and goes twice as deep." -S.A. Cosby, author of Blacktop Wasteland "Tromblay is a natural storyteller with an ear tuned for dialogue and an imagination that will keep readers wide-eyed and guessing, slack-jawed, and entertained. A manhunt shouldn't be this fun." -David Joy, author of When These Mountains Burn "Sangre Road is spectacular! From slow-burn to inferno in character development, story and inventive twists and unexpected turns." -Stephen Mack Jones, author of August Snow and Dead of Winter "Quick-witted, fast-paced, unpredictable. All roads converge to make Sangre Road a raucous, wide-open, crime-riddled joy ride." -Michael Farris Smith, author of Nick and Blackwood "Sangre Road is a wild trip through a surreal Clinton-era Oklahoma, paced like a small-town stock car race without any rules. And funny as hell to boot." -Scott Phillips, author of That Left Turn at Albuquerque and The Ice Harvest "Sangre Road is a gritty, funny crime caper that beats with a big heart. It's one part Coen Brothers, one part Elmore Leonard, but also a beast all its own. It takes you to unexpected places and leaves you thinking." -Nick Kolakowski, author of Boise Longpig Hunting Club and A Brutal Bunch of Heartbroken Saps "Tromblay's writing is easy to fall into because he is clear and funny, and just when you're relaxed, he'll hit you with a line that makes you go 'hell yeah.' Sangre Road is alive with the weirdo types of characters you'd see on a given day in Oklahoma, and their color and humanity shine through. Truly a pleasure to read crime fiction this good." -J. David Osborne, author of Black Gum "A rough-and-tumble journey through a landscape as colorful as its inhabitants." -Steph Post, author of Lightwood "David Tromblay has done that thing we don't get enough of; a remarkably unlikeable character dropped into a book that'll make you turn the pages regardless. Tone, smell, dust, and heat all live here on Sangre Road, and the chop-along dialogue will speed you right down to the end of the trail. Buckle up!" -Theo Van Alst Jr, author of Sacred Smokes "David Tromblay's Sangre Road pulsates with intensity. It's scrappy, sharp-edged, wild, and funny. One hell of a memorable ride." -William Boyle, author of City of Margins and Gravesend "A thrill ride through Oklahoma alongside the stubborn, punch-drunk, smart-mouthed bounty hunter Moses Kincaid, complete with bikers, prison peckerwoods, zombies, pro midget wrestlers, no-tell motels, greasy-spoon diners, and enough mouthfuls of heavy-duty pain pills to keep you asking, 'what's next?'" -Penni Jones, author of Suicide Souls and On the Bricks
