Book Synopsis   |   Biography   |   Schedule


Echoing the work of authors like Sarah Waters and Daniel Woodrell, Cottonmouths is from a compelling new voice in LGBTQ and Southern fiction. Set in the Arkansas Ozarks amid small-town America’s meth epidemic, this gripping debut explores crime and desire in an unflinching narrative about the ways in which the past pulls us back…despite our best efforts to leave it behind.
