Description

An assemblage of vivid prose-poetry, both gripping and furious, this collection navigates a macabre tour of nightmares, perverse secrets, and death-focused mythologies. Creating a world awash in violence and history, a landscape of gunslingers, madwomen, ghosts, and wolves is given greater shape with each concise, narrative verse. Enigmatic and thrilling, these compiled pieces lay the groundwork for Adamson’s award-winning and best-selling novel, The Outlander. Combining neo-gothicism, surrealist snapshots, feminism, and postmodern parables, each lyric moment echoes the characteristics of the outlaws described within'seductive and a little bit dangerous.
