The Outlaw Album PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

The Outlaw Album free pdf Daniel Woodrell is able to lend uncanny logic to harsh, even criminal, behaviour in his wrenching first collection of short fiction. Desperation - both material and psychological - motivates his characters. A husband cruelly avenges the murder of his wife's pet- an injured rapist is cared for by a young girl, until she reaches breaking point- a disturbed veteran of Iraq is murdered for his erratic behaviour- an outsider's house is set on fire by an angry neighbour. There is also the tenderness and loyalty of the vulnerable in these stories - between spouses, parents and children, siblings and comrades in arms - which brings the troubled, sorely tested cast of characters to vivid, relatable life.
