In a recent review on Goodreads.com a writer stated, "Gritty, gory, lyrical, and profoundly beautiful, this collection proves without question that Michael Garriga is a force to be reckoned with. Southern writers beware: this man means business."
In addition, the review includes, "From Cain and Abel to Andrew Jackson and Charles Dickenson; from John Henry and the steam drill to an alcoholic fighting the bottle: the cumulative effect of these powerful pieces is a probing and disconcerting look at humankind’s long-held notions of pride, honor, vengeance, and satisfaction. Meticulously crafted by Garriga, and with stunning illustrations by Tynan Kerr, The Book of Duels
is a fierce, searing debut.
We're pleased to host Mr. Garriga to share his first book, The Book of Duels.
