We are totally beguiled at the moment by "The Motel Life" by Willy Vlautin, frontman for alt country band Richmond Fontaine. So far 4.5 stars and counting, on this debut novel.

Fully agree with you on this one Seoman - I read this over last weekend and it's the best book I've come across in a good while.

I wonder if it has the potential to cross over to a wider audience here in the UK, (outside those appreciative of this type of Carver-esque Americana), since it lacks the drama that UK publishers/readers seem to look for.
