In steel-tipped prose, Rust and Bone conjures up a world of hard-scrabble pugilists, fighting dogs, sex addicts and others held captive by their own bad luck and bad decisions. This is a debut collection that pulls no punches: characterized by bold insights and raw power, each story illuminates the darkness with moments of surprising redemption to build a humane and wholly gripping account of what it means to be on the margins.
