Lean on Pete
A NovelBook - 2010
"[Vlautin] unearths a world Steinbeck would have recognised...where the American underclass still resides. Lean On Pete is an archetypal American novel, Huck Finn for the crystal-meth generation."
Author Willy Vlautin--"a major realist talent"(Seattle Post Intelligencer) who is often compared to Raymond Carver, John Steinbeck, and Denis Johnson--returns with Lean on Pete, the story of a 15-year old boy struggling to make his way to a long lost aunt, who just might give him a home. In the words of author Mark Billingham, "Vlautin is a truly original voice.... [and] one of the best writers in America," and "Lean on Pete is powerful, heartbreaking stuff."
