In THE LONE SUFER OF MONTANA, KANSAS, Davy Rothbart's strories grow out of road trips and small towns and are populated by questionable heroes and gold-hearted thugs. Full of loneliness and hope, heartbreak and humor, Rothbart's tales blaze their way from midwestern farm fields to state prisons and border-town brothels.
Much like the lost, tossed, and forgotten items Rothbart collected in his acclaimed book, Found, the stories in THE LONE SURFER OF MONTANA, KANSAS capture the oddity, poetry, and dignity of everyday life.
'It's always exciting to discover a talented new writer. Davy Rothbart writes with such energy, wit, and heart.' -Judy Blume
'Davy Rothbart is a prodigiously talented young writer, and I would happily read anything he writes. His stories are full of a strange nervous energy in which wisdom is also, somehow, always visible.' - Charles Baxter
