Mississippi novelist and dear friend Michael Farris Smith is one of our favorite living writers. Just one year after DESPERATION ROAD, still a Turnrow bestseller, Michael delivers a blistering novel of violence and deliverance, set against the mythic backdrop our own Mississippi Delta. THE FIGHTER is the gritty tale of Jack Boucher, a washed-up prize fighter who has mere hours to recover the money he needs to pay off Big Momma Sweet, the Delta’s most feared crime boss. Damaged by regret, crippled by twenty-five years of fists and elbows, heartbroken by his own betrayals, Jack is forced to step into the fighting pit one last time, the stakes nothing less than life or death. With the raw power and poetry of a young Larry Brown and the mysticism of Cormac McCarthy, Michael cements his place as one of the finest writers in the American literary landscape. Michael launches THE FIGHTER here in the Delta on Wednesday March 21 at 5:30pm. Join us!
