James Scott - The Kept

Colfax Avenue: Debut novelist James Scott will read from and sign his acclaimed first book The Kept ($25.99 HarperCollins). Set in rural New York state at the turn of the twentieth century, The Kept is a propulsive novel reminiscent of the works of Michael Ondaatje, Cormac McCarthy, and Bonnie Jo Campbell, in which a mother and her young son embark on a quest to avenge a terrible and violent tragedy that has shattered their secluded family. “With its vivid sense of time and place, lyrical writing, and complex questions of what constitutes a family, The Kept is an outstanding debut by a bright new voice in American fiction.” —Ron Rash, author of Nothing Gold Can Stay
