The Land by Thomas Maltman Download
An ambiguous and compelling story of violence at the heart of a pastoral landscape, from the author of Indie Next pick and All Iowa Reads selection Little Wolves
Just before the turn of millennium, and still recovering from a terrible auto accident, college dropout and hobbyist computer-game programmer Quincy Swenson becomes caretaker of a house in northern Minnesota. Quincy sets out to find his missing lover, who vanished along with money stolen from the bank where they had worked together. His search will take him to Rose of Sharon, a white supremacist church deep in the wilderness, where a cabal of outcasts wait for the end of the world at a place they call The Land. Quincy is visited at the house by wolves and a mysterious guest, who may not be who she claims, as well as a vast flock of violent ravens out of an apocalyptical vision. At once a mystery and spiritual noir, The Land explores the dark side of belief, the uniquely American obsession with apocalypse and racial identity, and the sacrifices we make for those we love.
