    In an ambitious narrative structure reminiscent of Robert Altman’s classic film Nashville, Larry Brown weaves together the stories of a sprawling cast of eccentric and lovable characters, each embarked on a quest for meaning, fulfillment, and love — with poignant and uproarious results. Set in Memphis and North Mississippi, The Rabbit Factory follows the colliding lives of, among others, Arthur, an older, socially ill-at-ease man of considerable wealth married to the much younger Helen, whose desperate need for satisfaction sweeps her into the arms of other men; Eric, who has run away from home thinking his father doesn’t want him and becomes Arthur’s unlikely surrogate son; and Anjalee, a big-hearted prostitute with her own set of troubles who crashes into the lives of the others like a one-woman hurricane. Teeming with pitch-perfect creations that include quirky gangsters, colorful locals, seemingly straitlaced professors, and fast-and-loose police officers, Brown’s spellbinding and often hilarious story is about the botched choices and missed chances that separate people — and the tenuous threads of love and coincidence that connect them. With all the subtlety and surprise of life itself, the story turns on a dime from comical to violent to moving. Masterful, profound, and full of spirit, The Rabbit Factory is literary entertainment of the highest order.

    In the tradition of True Grit, Charley Sunday’s Texas Outfit is a spirited tribute to a vanishing way of life—and to a courageous and honorable breed of men who helped to define the character of the American West. In the waning days of the Wild West, Texas rancher Charles Abner Sunday wants to leave a legacy of the Old West to his grandson, Henry-Ellis. Sunday buys 300 head of Texas longhorn cattle and leads his grandson—along with a ragtag crew of cronies and misfits—on an old-fashioned cross-country cattle drive. As the drovers struggle to push their 300 charges across a swiftly changing American frontier, they butt heads with a Colorado meatpacker hell-bent on living in the wild, wild past. Driven to possess Charley Sunday’s cattle by any means necessary, the aging but still tough-as-leather Texas outfit must go to war one last time. In the course of their journey, a young boy will learn what it means to be a man, and some old men will remember what it means to be truly alive.

    Marshall Karp is an acclaimed playwright known for his witty sense of humor and crackling dialogue. His debut novel The Rabbit Factory stars the irreverent LAPD detective duo of Mike Lomax and Terry Biggs. Dean Lamaar is the architect of an entertainment empire and the creator of iconic characters like Rambunctious Rabbit and McGreedy the Moose. When his company falls on hard times, the only hope to get it back in the black is Familyland-an amusement park in Las Vegas. Mere days before the grand opening, an actor playing Rambunctious Rabbit is found dead on the park grounds and everyone senses foul play. And after more characters wind up murdered, it becomes obvious that someone has it in for Lamaar. Lomax and Biggs are put on the case and together they root out a murderer. This rollicking tale is at once a multi-layered whodunit and a skewering of Tinseltown.
