About this title

Synopsis:

“Brett A. Savory goes to Hell--not in a handbasket, but behind the wheel of a kickass El Camino--in this un-Divine Comedy. Slapstick, surreal, and definitely scorching, The Distance Travelled offers mirth and mayhem with (dare I say?) devilish glee, and on the far side of the heat is a moving meditation on the role of here in the hereafter. It's a wild and wonderful journey, so climb aboard...but look out for the flying pigs!” --Douglas E. Winter, author of Run “Two questions for Brett Savory: ‘What're you smoking?’ And ‘May we please all have some?’ The Distance Travelled is an ergot-spawned argot of a novel that nabs its readers for a ride Charlie Starkweather'd be too chicken to take. Not since Lord of the Flies has fiction been so rough on a Piggy. Now, where'd I put those damned glasses?” --Michael Marano, author of Dawn Song “I loved it. Stylish, fun, and neatly turned. Distinctive and bizarre—and I mean that in a good way—this is a fine ride through some very unusual territories." --Michael Marshall Smith, author of Spares and Only Forward “True Grit meets Falling Angel...The Distance Travelled reads like a blissed-out round-the-table collaboration between Kinky Friedman, Clive Barker, Jim Thompson, Dante, and Thorne Smith. It's a Hell we could all learn to love--kind of--and Brett Savory is a very bad man. But the good news is that it’s safer for us all that he’s writing this stuff down rather than living it.” --Peter Crowther, author of Escardy Gap (with James Lovegrove) and The Longest Single Note "The Distance Travelled is a raucous blood-and-guts pulper, complete with hardboiled mugs like PigBoy, Tom China, and Portnoy Spavin. By setting his hero's mysterious quest in Hell itself, Brett Alexander Savory has started a whole new genre: Actual Underworld Noir." --Stewart O'Nan author of Snow Angels and Faithful co-written with Stephen King
