Книга: Craig Davidson «Rust and Bone»

Rust and Bone

Rust and Bone conjures a savage world of prizefighters, gamblers and sex addicts; dogs fight to the death and bare-knuckled men fight for survival on the most extreme margins. And yet these gritty stories are tempered by gentleness, the quiet understanding in the most intimate relationships. A whale trainer's accident, a boy's life endangered - where human vulnerability is so close to the surface, the humanity of these characters heralds redemption and hope.

Craig Davidson

Craig Davidson is a Canadian author of short stories and novels.[1] Davidson's first book, The Preserve, was a horror novel written under a pseudonym.[1] His first short story collection, Rust and Bone[2], was later published in September, 2005, by Penguin Books Canada. Davidson's style has been compared to that of Chuck Palahniuk[3][4]. Davidson also released a novel in 2007 named The Fighter[5]. During the course of his research of the novel, Davidson went on a 16 week steroid cycle [6]. To promote the release of the novel, Davidson participated in a fully sanctioned boxing match against Toronto poet Michael Knox at Florida Jack's Boxing Gym. Davidson was subsequently defeated in the match. [7]
