Wounded by Percival Everett

Book Description

Training horses is dangerous - a head-to-head confrontation with 1,000 pounds of muscle takes courage. It is these same qualities that allow John and his uncle Gus to live in the beautiful high desert of Wyoming. A black horse trainer is a curiosity, at the very least, but the brutal murder of a young gay man pushes this small community to the teetering edge of intolerance. Highly praised for his storytelling and ability to address the toughest issues of our time with a touching originality, Everett offers a brilliant novel that explores a divided America.

Books By Author Percival Everett

Walk Me to the Distance by Percival Everett Walk Me to the Distance, Paperback (October 2015)

First published in 1985, Walk Me to the Distance was Percival Everett's second novel, a hauntingly dark tragicomedy of the modern West, still clinging to a mythical heritage and code of frontier justice. With spare strokes Everett paints a telling landscape of big-sky country, where the mere act of living can be hard, cruel, and heart-stopping.

Trout's Lie by Percival Everett Trout's Lie, Paperback / softback (October 2015)

In Trout's Lie, Percival Everett explores the semantic relationship between sense and so-called nonsense and questions whether either is actually possible."
