From the author of The Motel Life comes another hugely moving slice of Americana.
Willy Vlautin grew up in Reno, Nevada U.S.A. He studied writing with the great Nevadan author Randell Reed and has published short stories in magazines such as Story, Sun Dog Review, Cold Drill and Zembla. His first novel, The Motel Life, was published by Faber and Faber in 2006. He is also the songwriter and vocalist for the internationally acclaimed band, Richmond Fontaine, whose albums include Post to Wire (2004), and most recently, The Fitzgerald (2005), which was described by Q as 'the most beautiful sad album of the year.' He lives in Portland, Oregon.
