Bruce Holbert Reads from Lonesome Animals Today at Darvill's

If you love crime fiction, but hate two-dimensional characters...
If you love westerns, but hate the false history of Indian-as-threat and settler-as-hero...
If you love action, but only when it serves a purpose in the plot...
If you love hard-nosed lyricism, but can rarely find it... won't want to miss Bruce Holbet reading from his highly acclaimed first novel, Lonesome Animals, today at Darvill's Bookstore in Eastsound.

For a preview of Holbert's writing, read his thoughtful and heart-wrenching essay in the New York times about accidentally killing a friend when he was a young man:

Then come to Darvill's to hear the work of a writer who knows violence firsthand, and writes about it not to be sensational but in a quest for redemption of the true history of the west, and redemption of civilization itself. Followed by wine, hors d'eouvres, and open mic. Open and free to the public.
