Rough Animals - Rae Delbianco

Staff Pick

Rae DelBianco’s debut novel is an intense, violent, visceral, at times overwhelming odyssey where the land is as much a character as any human and even more likely to ruin you. Exchanging cowboy hats and six-shooters for cartels and TEC-9s, DelBianco’s rural thriller is an incredible modern Western that explores our changing understanding of that specifically American mythology, and through it, the violence that underlies everyday life. Earning comparisons to Denis Johnson and Cormac McCarthy (which should be reason enough to read it), this is a ferocious book, as unforgiving and destructive as it is transcendent.
