"Here I was, doing ninety on the Santa Monica Freeway with a quart of whiskey shoved into my crotch and my dead neighbor in the trunk. It had come time to leave Los Angeles." Thus begins the pre-apocalyptic, cross-country race with death to bury the murdered past in Joseph Mattson's Empty the Sun, an urgent, beautifully reckless novel of transgressive loss and hunted redemption culminating in a shotgun fight with God. Includes a soundtrack by Drag City recording artist Six Organs of Admittance.
