An Award–winning Author

Horace Hopper spent most of his life on a Nevada sheep ranch. The Reeses took him in and treated him like a son, intending to leave the ranch to him. But Horace, ashamed of his half-Paiute, half-Irish heritage and the fact his parents didn’t want him, feels as if he doesn’t belong there, or anywhere. Needing to make a name for himself, Horace leaves the only loving home he’s known to prove his worth as a championship boxer.


Customer Reviews

“[Vlautin] strips away our defenses with close-to-the bone prose that leaves us utterly exposed to the tragedy of being alive and every bit as thankful for those moments of aching humanity . . .”
