9780099450283: Tietam Brown

Antietam (Andy) Brown - named for the great-great-grandfather who died on that Civil War battleground - was ten years old when he killed his abusive foster father. Now, after seven years in reform school, he is free to make a new start. But he is immediately thrust into the violent and debased life of his real father (known as Tietam) - an oddly charismatic man who seems addicted to bodybuilding, beer-swilling and 'bareback riding'.

Swimming through a morass of crudity and violence, Andy is stunned to find himself pursued by the high school homecoming queen - a born-again Christian. Obsessed with the idea of offering his girlfriend a pure love and driven to find out whether he's descended from a monster or a hero, Andy searches for the truth in the dangerous currents of his father's past and present.

"Brilliant and disturbing... A novel of immense power and subtlety" ( Guardian)

"Take JD Salinger, throw in a bit of Dostoevsky, sprinkle with Bret Easton Ellis, and you're getting there" ( Guardian)

"Foley brilliantly charts the young Andy's emotional deprivation and the adolescent Andy's romantic confusion" ( Daily Mail)

"Raw, funny and moving stuff. Drop your preconceptions on entry and enjoy a real book by a real writer" ( Big Issue)

"You'll be gripped by this great read" ( Daily Mirror)

Book Description:

'It's irritating when a wrestler's first novel is better than the efforts of many writers. You don't see me putting on a leotard and jumping on people' - Tibor Fischer
