Beschreibung:

D. Foy’s second novel is a tornado of brutal Americana. Patricide is a heavy metal Huck Finn that whips up the haunted melancholy of Kerouac’s Doctor Sax, a novel of introspection and youth in its corruption that seethes with the deadly obsession of Moby-Dick, and the darkness of Joy Williams’ State of Grace. Beyond the story of a boy growing up in a family derailed by a hapless father, Patricide is a search for meaning and identity within the strange secrecy of the family. This is an existential novel of wild power, of memories, and of mourning-in-life, softened, always, by the tenderness at its core. With it, Foy’s place among the outstanding voices in American literature is guaranteed.
Matthew Specktor says, “I already knew Foy was a genius. Now I’m beginning to think he’s a saint.” Scott Cheshire calls Patricide “a true work of art—addictive, hypnotic, relentless.” Dennis Cooper calls this bold, exhilarating novel simply “fantastic.”

Stalking Horse Press donates from the proceeds of each of its books to a humanitarian or non-profit organization of the author’s choosing.
