Tres Gatos Book Club: The Ploughmen

On June 26th, we will meet at Tres Gatos to discuss, debate, dig into, drink around and dissect THE PLOUGHMEN by Kim Zapan. This book club is open to the public, and the book is currently on sale at Tres Gatos.

"Steeped in a lonesome Montana landscape as unyielding and raw as it is beautiful, Kim Zupan's The Ploughmen is a new classic in the literature of the American West.

At the center of this searing, fever dream of a novel are two men―a killer awaiting trial, and a troubled young deputy―sitting across from each other in the dark, talking through the bars of a county jail cell: John Gload, so brutally adept at his craft that only now, at the age of 77, has he faced the prospect of long-term incarceration and Valentine Millimaki, low man in the Copper County sheriff's department, who draws the overnight shift after Gload's arrest. With a disintegrating marriage further collapsing under the strain of his night duty, Millimaki finds himself seeking counsel from a man whose troubled past shares something essential with his own. Their uneasy friendship takes a startling turn with a brazen act of violence that yokes together two haunted souls by the secrets they share, and by the rugged country that keeps them."

See you all there!
