The Son, by Philipp Meyer
“Meyer’s first book, American Rust, was a literary page-turner. His second, The Son, is an American epic. I read an advance copy and came away staggered by its power and depth. I haven’t read anything this good in a long, long time.”
—Kevin Powers is the author of The Yellow Birds, just published in paperback ($15, amazon).
