From the acclaimed author of A Lesson in Violence, comes a blistering collection that unsparingly confronts the extreme, brutal parts of the human heart. Hard-edged but with the fresh, complex humanity of Breaking Bad and Reservoir Dogs, this is an unforgettable debut from an electrifying new voice.

A man runs away from his grave and into a maelstrom of bullets and fire. A Hollywood fixer finds love over the corpse of a dead celebrity. A morbidly obese woman imagines a new life with the jewel thief who is scheming to rob the store where she works. A man earns the name ‘Mad Dog’ and lives to regret it.

All are thirsting for something seemingly just beyond their reach. Some are on the run, pursued by the law or propelled relentlessly forward by a dangerous past. Others are searching for a semblance of peace and stability, and even love, in a fractured world defined by seething violence and ruthless desperation. All are bruised, pushed to their breaking point and beyond, driven to extremes they never imagined.
