The eleven remarkable stories in Kevin Hardcastle's debut Debris introduce an authentic new voice. Written in a lean and muscular style and brimming with both violence and compassion, these stories unflinchingly explore the lives of those -- MMA fighters, the institutionalized, small-town criminals -- who exist on the fringes of society, unveiling the blood and guts and beauty of life in our flyover regions.
