By John Vigna

"A heartbreaking portrait of what it skill to be a guy in a global the place violence trumps cause, and undesirable judgements start with stable intentions. With wit, tenderness, and intelligence, Bull Head exposes the uncooked underbelly of male experience."—Gary Shteyngart, writer of Super unhappy real love Story

A line-dancing aficionado visits his brother in reformatory in hopes of mending their dating, and as a substitute discovers his personal unwitting position in his brother's failed existence. After the dying of his spouse and youngsters, a logger attempts to outlive the Thanksgiving weekend on his personal. A antisocial teen's lifestyles is modified eternally via a work-camp placement with a violent older boy. A truck driving force seeks sanctuary from his abusive spouse in a fable international of strip golf equipment and private ads.

Bristling with restlessness and brutality, those associated tales set within the Pacific Northwest catapult readers into the gritty lives of social outcasts misplaced in purgatories in their personal making. John Vigna tempers uncooked and every now and then merciless rural masculinity with sleek prose and breathtaking tenderness to light up the plight of guys residing in small cities and backwoods who belong neither to historical past nor the longer term. A startling homage to the nice Southern Gothic culture, Bull Head is a blinding debut that heralds a robust and interesting new literary voice.
