Chapbook: The Mountain Cousins

“The Mountain Cousins is so wickedly original, so inventive and assured and downright strange, that it’s hard to believe it wasn’t written by a seasoned literary star with several novels under his belt. Christopher Tradowsky seems as much a descendant of Tennessee Williams and Flannery O’Connor as he does of Stephen King, and his inventive, grimly visionary story is unforgettable.” — Scott Heim 2013 fiction judge
