About the Author
Matt Riordan grew up in Michigan but spent his early twenties working on commercial fishing boats in Alaska. After college, Matt drifted from commercial fishing through a variety of jobs before landing in law school. He then became a litigator in New York City, where he practiced for twenty years. He now lives with his family in Australia.
"A frightening story of tough men pushed to the brink. The novel is captivating, occasionally funny, and startling. I couldn't put it down." --David Sedaris

"The North Line is a ruggedly erudite story that combines the best of the individualism of Jack London with the introspective ruminations of Raymond Carver . . . not to be missed."
--S.A. Cosby New York Times bestselling author of All the Sinners Bleed

"[A]n irresistible portrait of commercial fishermen fighting for survival in the early 1990s Alaska. [...] The novel's colorful dialogue and relentless pacing evoke the uncompromising headwinds in [the main character's] path. This is a triumph of gritty realism. "
--Publishers Weekly (Starred)

"The North Line is one of those rare books that you feel as much as read. The world and its details are so real, so intimate, and so lived-in and that I had to check my fingertips for fish scales once I finished reading."
--Craig Davidson, author of Rust and Bone

"Riordan is summoning demons in this grimy wilderness saga that might hit entirely too close to home for those who know. Magnificent."
--Laird Barron, author of The Wind Began to Howl
