About the Author

John Brandon is a well-known reporter and columnist for Inc. magazine, Fox News Network, Christianity Today, Relevant magazine, and many others. For ten years, he worked as a corporate manager in the Information Technology field. After 9/11, John's employer (who became nervous about the world economy) fired him. At the advice of his wife, he became a writer and has since published over twelve thousand articles in seventeen years. Over ten million people have read his thought-pieces on leadership, productivity, mentoring, and technology for Inc.com. He lives in Minnesota with his wife, Rebecca, and has four children, two sons-in-law, and three grandchildren. This is his first book.

Reviews

"John Brandon's remarkable first novel will blow away a certain readership. . . . Arkansas rants against the machine in a voice combining Raymond Chandler's side-of-the-mouth noir with Quentin Tarantino's gleeful-psychopath wit and Mark Twain's episodic romance of the journey." --San Francisco Chronicle

"Brandon's premier novel is a must for those who love the criminal and the stern yet dark optimism of the existential. His vision of Arkansas is unique, his wit is sharp, and the sympathy he has for his characters is genuine. For all the dark alleys Brandon explores, both physically and psychologically, Arkansas's power rests in its redefining and restructuring of the criminal's only hope: family." --PopMatters

"Add novelist John Brandon to your list of hipster-sanctioned must-reads . . . Brandon's writing is so sparse it sometimes feels blasé, but the tension between his hard-boiled prose and his characters' appealing naiveté makes the novel work." --The Portland Mercury
