Salvage King, Ya!: A Herky-jerky Picaresque
Debut novel from the author of 19 Knives and New Orleans is Sinking. Salvage King, Ya! is a gritty, down-to-earth story of a hockey player’s last few years in the minors. Drinkwater, an almost-got-to-the-NHL tough-mouthed romantic is skidding through the tail end of his 30s on a high-octane journey of self-actualization. Chip-toothed and soaring he struggles to come to terms with the conflicting aspirations of his youth and the reality of inheriting the family junkyard. Roving. Luminous. Rowdy. Funny.
