Joe Wilkins, Pushcart Prize winner and a finalist for the PEN Center USA Journalism Award and National Magazine Award, has written a dark and haunting debut novel for our time. Wilkins brings Montana and the American West to life with the same authenticity of Daniel Woodrell’s Ozarks and Ron Rash’s Appalachia. With Fall Back Down When I Die, set in eastern Montana ranch country, Wilkins gives us a beautiful tale of love and sacrifice and bonds that can’t be broken as he shares the story of Wendell Newman and the abandoned boy put in his care.
