Product Description

Donald Ray Pollock made his literary debut in 2008 with the critically acclaimed story collection, Knockemstiff. Here, in his second book, THE DEVIL ALL THE TIME, Pollock continues unearthing his rarefied, dark and riveting vision of America. . The novel follows a cast of compelling and bizarre characters from the end of WWII to the 1960s. There’s Willard Russell, tormented veteran of the carnage in the South Pacific, who can’t save his beautiful wife, Charlotte, from an agonizing death by cancer, no matter how much sacrificial blood he pours on his “prayer log.” There’s Carl and Sandy Henderson, a husband-and-wife team of serial killers who troll America’s highways searching for suitable models to photograph and exterminate. There’s the spider-handling preacher, Roy, and his crippled virtuoso-guitar playing sidekick. And caught in the middle of all this is Arvin Eugene Russell, Willard and Charlotte’s orphaned son, who grows up to be a good but also violent man in his own right. If you’ve read Cormac McCarthy, you won’t want to miss Donald Ray Pollock. 261p.
