Even if you don't live near these places, maybe your BFF does?
KP is the brother of a mass shooter. JD is the shooter's number 1 fan. The pair drives through rural Idaho, the physical and psychological landmarks of the violence imposing themselves on the characters and the reader.
The Spud is a puzzle: thinking/watching/living a movie rerun…
The book is timely, given the terrible frequency of mass shootings in this country. And its structure reflects the complex nature of the topics it covers, using an internal logic that only reveals itself the deeper you get into it.
While its content is most similar to A Clockwork Orange, Sartre's Nausea, or the work of Cormac McCarthy, its form has more in common with indie films like Badlands and Deleuze's philosophies on cinema. Fans of films such as Gus Van Sant’s Elephant and Oliver Stone’s Natural Born Killers are gonna love it.
The Spud will be IN STORES EVERYWHERE NOV. 6 but available direct from us very sooon! In the meantime, read an excerpt on our website and watch the teaser video below. Brielle will travel extensively to promote the book this fall—we promise these events are not to be missed!
