A hard-hitting literary collection about small towns and their inhabitants, like the sisters who can't stop laughing at a funeral, or the kid who's about to steal a truck.
"Hemingway vibes... at times uncomfortable, and always challenging in their account of the small town reality we often try not to see." - Amazon user
"If you like Daniel Woodrell, Jeannette Walls or similar authors, you'll enjoy Allan's work." - Amazon user
"It's the perfect marriage between the depressing and the hopeful, the awkward and the at-ease, and the beautiful and the ugly." - Narrative Muse
These are stories about the small places. They're in the gap between the chiller and the counter where the fast food workers cry, or the cliffs above the lake where siblings are trying to stop one another from spilling over. They're in the desert, waiting for a pregnancy test. They're at a bonfire, watching a car go up in flames.
Uncompromising and occasionally surreal, these are the stories not commonly told about the people often overlooked. They merge themes of class, gender and identity with humour and a surprisingly tender reach for community.
Don't miss this debut collection from an important up-and-coming new writer.
