In steel-tipped prose, Craig Davidson conjures up a bleak world populated by hardscrabble pugilists, fighting dogs, sex addicts, and others held captive by their own bad luck and bad decisions. Visceral and with a dark urgency, Rust and Bone is a strikingly original debut.

Editorial Reviews

"These big, riveting stories about tough guys in trouble are the best I’ve read in a long time from a young writer." —Bret Easton Ellis, author of American Psycho"Davidson ... smudges the line between comedy and horror, cruelty and mercy. His remarkable stories are challenging and upsetting." —Chuck Palahniuk, author of Fight Club"When it comes to raw power, Davidson is truly a force to be reckoned with." —Thom Jones, author of The Pugilist at Rest"This is in every way an extraordinary book." —Clive Barker, author of Books of Blood"A writer of immense power and surprising, accurate insights." —Peter Straub, author of Ghost Story"Craig Davidson is a wickedly good storyteller who weaves worlds out of blood and magic and humanity. Our Great Northern Hope." —Joseph Boyden, author of Three Day Road"Sometimes so tough as to be volcanically sentimental, unreal, sometimes acutely accurate and tender ... a powerful debut." —The Globe and Mail"Davidson writes with a precision and power that’s hard to ignore ... It’s an excellent collection." —The Independent
