Donald Ray Pollock

Monday, August 7, 2017 - 7:00p.m. to 9:00p.m.

From Donald Ray Pollock, author of the highly acclaimed “The Devil All the Time” and “Knockemstiff,” comes a dark, gritty novel that will solidify his place among the best contemporary American authors. It is 1917 in that sliver of border land that divides Georgia from Alabama. Dispossessed farmer Pearl Jewett ekes out a hardscrabble existence with his three sons. Several hundred miles away, Ellsworth Fiddler is swindled out of his family’s entire fortune. In the gothic tradition of Flannery O’Connor and Cormac McCarthy, the Jewetts and the Fiddlers will find their lives colliding in increasingly horrific ways.
