About the Author
"It's no secret that Corey Mesler is one hell of a writer. The irresistible Camel's Bastard Son is his tenth novel. One marvel of this gritty and propulsive tale is its bravado. There aren't many writers who would dare to do what Corey does here. He explores a wild new territory of desperate love, alienation, heartache, and . . . well, let's just say, you're about to travel to places you've never been before. Billy Kos, as memorable a character as you're likely to meet, has embarked on a long strange trip, and there's room for one more. So hop aboard, but strap on your seatbelt and hold on to your hat. The road's a little bumpy up ahead."
--John Dufresne, author of Louisiana Power and Light and I Don't Like Where This Is Going
"Corey Mesler has written a dystopian novel for the post-Trump era, giving us an imagined world--actually, an imagined universe--populated with a cast of characters who seem too far-fetched for today but eerily plausible for the not- too-distant future. If this a nightmare (or, "daymare," as Mesler calls it) about where we're headed, the novel makes a poignant, often-funny plea for changing direction."
--Dana Sachs, author of The Secret of the Nightingale Palace and If You Lived Here
"Camel's Bastard Son, by Corey Mesler, is smart, sharp, weird, sexy and funny, which is to say it's terrific, and I read it at a gallop, and I'm betting you will too. This is like Kurt Vonnegut for our fraught moment. It's also--hats off to Mesler--like nothing I've ever read."
--Laird Hunt, author of The Impossibly and In the House in the Dark of the Woods
