Quick Overview

The Convalescent is the story of a small, bearded man selling meat out of a bus parked next to a stream in suburban Virginia ... and also, somehow, the story of 10,000 years of Hungarian history.

Details

Jessica Anthony, the inaugural winner of the Amanda Davis Highwire Fiction Award, makes an unforgettable debut with an unforgettable hero: Rovar Ákos Pfliegman — unlikely bandit, unloved lover, and historian of the unimportant. 'The Convalescent is a fleshy fable spinning in and out of its own enormous, fabulous history. It is lush, cranky, and powered by dark, sweet humor. Mesmerizing. And a lot of fun. I enjoyed it completely.' -Katherine Dunn
