James ScottThe Kept

Debut novelist James Scott reads from and discusses his acclaimed first book The Kept. Set in rural New York state at the turn of the twentieth century, The Kept is a propulsive novel reminiscent of the works of Michael Ondaatje, Cormac McCarthy, and Bonnie Jo Campbell, in which a mother and her young son embark on a quest to avenge a terrible and violent tragedy that has shattered their secluded family. “With its vivid sense of time and place, lyrical writing, and complex questions of what constitutes a family, The Kept is an outstanding debut by a bright new voice in American fiction.” – Ron Rash, author of Nothing Gold Can Stay

($25.99) HarperCollins ISBN # 9780062236739. You can visit James Scott‘s official web site as well.
