About the Author

Glenn Taylor is the author of the novels The Marrowbone Marble Company and The Ballad of Trenchmouth Taggart, a finalist for the National Book Critics Circle Award. He was born and raised in Huntington, West Virginia, and he now lives with his wife and three sons in Morgantown, where he teaches at West Virginia University.


Public hangings, outlaws, and brothels figure into Taylor's lyrical, funny story.
As complex (and frail) as . . . an Elmore Leonard novel. . . This ingeniously structured novel is a lot of fun -- if you like card tricks and whiskey and the story of people with nothing who are trying to pull off a big one.
