Digging Up The Bones,
by Dale Marlowe
This collection of linked stories follows the curses of a father, visited upon the Nash family over the course of three generations, spanning the 1960’s to the present. In rich, moving episodes, readers engage the lives of stunned-straight racists, scarred veterans, doomed lovers, would-be assassins, gun-toting grandmothers, nascent female crime-bosses, ambivalent mourners, big-time drug-running, and bewildered survivors trying to make sense of it all. This is not a family—it’s a world; this is not a book—it’s an indictment; these words are not written—they’re howled.
