By the author of Winter's Bone, a 2011 Academy Award Best Picture Nominee. Winner of the PEN West Award for the Novel. A New York Times Notable Book.
"Reading Tomato Red—the first Daniel Woodrell novel I came upon—was a transformative experience. It expanded my sense of the possibilities not only of crime fiction, but of fiction itself—of language, of storytelling. Time and again, his work just dazzles and humbles me. God bless Busted Flush for these glorious reissues. It's a service to readers everywhere, and a great gift."—Megan Abbott, award-winning author of Bury Me Deep
"Woodrell's storytelling is as melodic, jangly, and energetic as a good banjo riff. . . . If one is tempted to hear the echoes of William Faulkner, or Erskine Caldwell . . . no matter. Mr. Woodrell isn't imitating any of them. He's only drawing from the same well they did, but with a different take, a different voice, a sharper sense of irony."—The New York Times Book Review
A dark noir novel set in West Table, Missouri, featuring nineteen-year-old Jamalee, her gorgeous gay brother, Jason, and Sammy Barlach, the young man passing through West Table, who just may be their ticket out.
Daniel Woodrell lives in the Missouri Ozarks. His five most recent novels were selected as New York Times Notable Books of the Year, and Tomato Red won the PEN West Award for the Novel. His short story "Uncle" (in Busted Flush Press' A Hell of a Woman: An Anthology of Female Noir) was nominated for the Edgar Award.
