The Devil All The Time

Author:

Donald Ray Pollock

Synopsis:

Set in rural southern Ohio and West Virginia, after the Second World War up to the 1960s, THE DEVIL ALL THE TIME follows the lives of a bizarre cast of characters. There's Willard Russell, who can't save his beautiful wife, Charlotte, from a slow death by cancer, no matter how much sacrificial blood he pours on his 'prayer log'. There's Carl and Sandy Henderson, a husband-and-wife team of serial killers, who trawl America's highways, searching for suitable models to photograph and exterminate. And, running from the law, there's the spider-handling preacher, Roy, and his crippled virtuoso-guitar playing sidekick. Then there's Arvin Eugene Russell, Willard and Charlotte's orphaned son, who grows up to be a good but also violent man in his own right.

Things We Nearly Knew

Jim Powell

There's a bar at the crossroads on the way out of town. Or the way in, depending on whether you're coming or going. Marcie and her husband have run it for years. After three decades of marriage, there aren't many secrets left between them. Couples often say that, don't they? But it's not always true... Arlene appears in the bar one day, not long before Franky Albertino comes back into town, hoping that she'd find a man called Jack. Franky's problem had always been women. Women and money. What Arlene's problem is isn't clear. It's obvious she has a history. But who doesn't? As Arlene gets closer to finding Jack - her father? Her lover? - the bar becomes the scene of a great unravelling, and secrets buried a lifetime ago are dragged into the light...
