Bush Falls by Jonathan Tropper
Book DescriptionJoe Goffman's vicious first novel has savaged the reputation of Bush Falls. When a family emergency summons him back to the town he left 17 years ago, he's not surprised at the welcome he receives: milk-shakes thrown in his face, copies of his novel pelting his house and violent threats to blow up his shiny new Mercedes. But the more Bush Falls resents Joe, the more it becomes obvious that Joe cannot turn his back on Bush Falls. As he walks along the familiar streets, memories return to haunt him with a vengeance - about a secret love affair, an old friendship and a tragic death. Now, decades later, Joe has to face his past without resorting to his pen. And with the help of some very old friends, he might just be able to learn something - if he manages to survive his homecoming. At once hilarious and bittersweet, Bush Falls is a tale of the double-edged rewards of fame, revenge and redemption as a writer takes on a village and the ghosts of his past.
