More About Country Hardball by Steve Weddle
 
 
 
Overview
A powerfully observed, evocative, and "downright dazzling" (The New York Times) portrait of the American working class in this collection of related stories, perfect for fans of Bonnie Jo Campbell and Denis Johnson

After more than a decade spent in and out of juvenile detention, halfway houses, and jail, Roy Alison returns to his rural hometown determined to do better. But what he finds is a working-class community devastated by the economic downturn--a town without anything to hold onto but the past.

Staying with his grandmother, Roy discovers a family history of good intentions and bad choices. Around him, families lose their sons to war, hunting accidents, drugs. And Roy, along with the town, falls into old patterns established generations ago.

With Steve Weddle's signature "powerful, empathetic" (Sean Chercover, Wall Street Journal bestselling author) prose, this novel-in-stories is a masterful and understated exploration of hardship, truth and hope.
