Product description


“A feat of sustained tension and deep humanity. With trenchant insight into the way young men are primed to make disastrous choices, Farmer's moving debut gripped me from the first page and did not let go or disappoint. Get acquainted with Farmer's work now—you're going to be hearing about him for a long time.”—Smith Henderson, author of Fourth of July Creek

“What makes The Pallbearer so powerful, ultimately, is Farmer's language that welds lyricism to a ferocious vision upending our notions about the unseen, the rural poor, and ultimately, those who hunger for any small thing to save their lives. He reminds us to be human in the better sense of the word-to care more, not less.” —Jonis Agee, author of The Bones of Paradise

“Captivating. Intensely atmospheric. Stark, haunting, poetic. Aficionados of Jim Thompson will appreciate Farmer's gritty portrait of dangerous, heartbroken misfits, and they'll find in The Pallbearer all the raw, crooked suspense of the best film noir. Above all is the depth of Farmer's perspective on these devastated characters and all the intrigue they kick up from the dust and dirt.”—Timothy Schaffert, author of The Swan Gondola

“Written in bar-blood, prescription pill puke and a deftly insightful pathos, Farmer's The Pallbearer is a sensitive and harrowing soul shriek from the neglected youth of Trumpland.”—Bradford Tatum, author of Only the Dead Know Burbank --This text refers to the hardcover edition.
