It's a place for misfits. For stories that will rip out your heart and give you back one better than what you started with. Stories about prejudice, rage, and hope. About surviving it all and showing the world that what doesn t kill you makes you stronger.
In three novellas, Chris Crutcher brings together some of his most unforgettable characters among them Sarah Byrnes, Angus Bethune, and Montana West to bare their souls. No sugarcoating here. Just the truth.
