The Bitch by Les Edgerton
The author, Les Edgerton, is an ex-con who spent two years in prison for burglary at the Pendleton Reformatory in Indiana. Since his release, he has earned a B.A. from Indiana University and an MFA in Writing from Vermont College. This will be the thirteenth book he has published, with several more forthcoming later this year and next, including a short story collection, an existential noir novel, a new black comedy novel, and his memoir. His career for many years as an outlaw and criminal lend an air of rare verisimilitude to his crime novels.
The book cover was designed by Butterflies & Hurricanes in Prague. The novel was edited by Eddie Vega for Bare Knuckles Press.
