The dogs of detroit
"Felver’s writing is sharp and insightful. His stories evoke the style and themes of writers ranging from Richard Russo to Rick Bass to Andre Dubus III and, in the particularly brutal surrealist title story, “The Dogs of Detroit,” Cormac McCarthy. A substantial debut by a promising and confident new writer."
“With consummate skill and assurance, Brad Felver writes of overlooked people suffering physical and emotional deprivation, who struggle, now and again with success, in thwarted lives."
-Lynne Sharon Schwartz, Drue Heinz Literature Prize judge
"These stories contain the powerful voices of the hungry and the grieving and the lost of America and each of them will leave an indelible mark."
-Hannah Tinti, author of The Twelve Lives of Samuel Hawley
"Brad Felver is a master of voice and creating unforgettable characters, and the stories in The Dogs of Detroit are knockouts...No one writes like Brad Felver, and The Dogs of Detroit is a remarkable collection."
-Anne Valente, author of Our Hearts Will Burn Us Down
