Publisher's Summary

In steel-tipped prose, Craig Davidson conjures up a bleak world populated by hardscrabble pugilists, fighting dogs, sex addicts, and others held captive by their own bad luck and bad decisions. Visceral and with a dark urgency, Rust and Bone is a strikingly original debut.

What the critics say

"Stark oppositions often pack the punch in these gritty tales about American tough guys on the ropes." (The Guardian)

"Davidson's stories...present a world without obvious hope. Yet they are all so carefully crafted that the prose itself offers some kind of redemption. Sometimes so tough as to be volcanically sentimental, unreal, sometimes acutely accurate and tender, they represent a powerful debut." (Globe and Mail)

"There is a strikingly original tone to Mr. Davidson's stories. The prose is spare yet elegant, the insights are fresh and real, and best of all there is a boundless humanity in Mr. Davidson's writing: a love of life that is beautifully woven with an acute sense of its darkness. This is in every way an extraordinary book." (Clive Barker)
