A Story of Redemption & Self Acceptance, a Fiction Book Talk & Signing
Author JP Gritton will discuss and sign Wyoming ($15.99 Tin House). A cross between Daniel Woodrell and Annie Proulx, Wyoming is about the stubborn grip of inertia and whether or not it is possible to live without accepting oneself.
It’s 1988 and Shelley Cooper is in trouble. He’s broke, he’s been fired, and his ex-wife has left him. The only opportunity on his horizon is fifty pounds of his brother’s high-grade marijuana, which needs to be driven from Colorado to Houston and exchanged for a lockbox full of cash. The delivery goes off without a hitch, but getting home with the money proves to be a different challenge. Shelley becomes a case study in the question of whether it’s possible to live without accepting yourself, and the dope money is the key to a lock he might never find. Wyoming considers the possibility of redemption in a world that grants forgiveness grudgingly, if at all.
