Synopsis

A construction worker is chased through the night by a shady local businessman whose dog he has stolen; a Wild West re-enactor is engaged in a long-running affair with the Indian 'squaw' who slays him on the battlefield every year; a boy is tasked by his father to rid the farm of cats. Playing out against the rugged backdrop of the untamed West, these stories are populated by characters who are toughened by life but still tender enough to bleed, to cry, to care, and to dream. With its taut plotting and calloused sensibility, Dog Run Moon is written deep in the American grain, and yet Callan Wink's humour, empathy and layered storytelling creates a fictional world entirely his own. This remarkable debut reminds you just how effortlessly powerful good writing can be.

Staff Choice

Dog Run Moon is flooded with beautiful, considered stories where the unreal lurks at the corners. Characters looking for connection in vast landscapes - moonlit forests, open acres of farmland - where both good and ill are offered. Things are not always explained here, the reader not always given the whole truth, and so the short stories hang at odd angles, catching the light in unexpected and lovely ways.

Callan Wink is being touted as one of the best, new American voices, and maybe he is.
