'Magnificent. Vlautin is now one of America's great writers.' RODDY DOYLE

'Vlautin is one of the bravest novelists writing.' URSULA K. LE GUIN

Meet Horace Hopper, a twenty-one-year-old farm hand in Tonopah, Nevada, who works for Mr Reece and his wife, the nearest thing he's had to family in years.

But Horace, half-white half-Paiute Indian, dreams of bigger things. Leaving behind the farm and its fragile stability, he heads South to re-invent himself as the Mexican boxer Hector Hidalgo. Slowly, painfully, the possibility emerges that his dreams might not just be the delusions of a lost soul. but at what cost, and what of those he's left behind?

Exploring the fringes of contemporary America, Don't Skip Out on Me is an extraordinary work of compassion - a novel about the need for human connection and understanding - and essential reading, now more than ever.

First novel in four years from the much-loved Willy Vlautin, of the bands Richmond Fontaine and The Delines. Publishing just ahead of the cinema release of his IMPAC Prize shortlisted novel Lean on Pete.
