Publisher's Summary

Set in a variety of Southern landscapes, these startling stories excavate the ambiguous terrain of the human heart. Pizzolatto finds beauty in loneliness as his characters attempt to bridge the gulfs between themselves and others, past and present, and sometimes the even wider chasms that separate them from their true selves.

In this stunning debut, a base-jumping samurai park ranger parachutes off the St. Louis arch. A stained-glass artist struggles over his masterpiece for a castle in Southern Missouri and learns through great loss what his true subject will be. A schoolteacher searches for her missing son, her only clue a mysterious, paint-smeared stencil he left behind. And in the title story, which first appeared in Atlantic Monthly, an orphaned young man and his former high school football coach set out to kidnap the coach's daughter from Los Angeles and bring her back to East Texas.

With a forceful and compassionate voice, Pizzolatto places us at the crossroads of memory and desire, longing and loss, somewhere between here and the Yellow Sea.

    Story
    "Dark, hopeless tales"

    Pizzolatto takes run on the dark side anyway (witness Galveston and True Detective), but these short stories leave you feeling the author just spray painted your soul black.
