The Ozarks are so in right now. And this lyrical, haunting first novel from music writer and poet Philip Stephens is the kind of book that we wish came with its own soundtrack. Beautiful, strange, with language so precise that it’ll make you weep. Only a poet could write a novel so vivid. Tottenville salutes Philip Stephens.
Synopsis: Miss Me When I’m Gone is the story of Cyrus Harper, a failed folksinger trying to salvage his talents and flee his past, and Margaret Bowman, a murderess set on kidnapping her daughter.
“A lavishly written, vividly imagined, and wholly compelling work of fiction . . . I was spellbound. Often, in fact, I was in awe.” -Tim O’Brien
