Beneath the Bonfire by Nickolas Butler

Beneath the Bonfire by Nickolas Butler features a collection of 10 original and remarkable stories. Butler has a unique talent for portraying characters and places that readers will love and want to visit. From the first story, “The Chainsaw Soiree,” to the last called “Apples,” readers will discover achingly beautiful stories. There is a familiar landscape in each offering and Butler has the ability to leave his mark in just a few heartfelt words. After the success of Shotgun Lovesongs, we believe his follow-up novel is a gem as well. —Kathleen Eddy, Valley Bookseller
