Luke Ahearn about this book: This is a gritty, violent, heart-wrenching story of human evolution that makes the resulting romance that much sweeter. Scene after hideous scene unfolds until "the perfect, brilliant ending."
In the dismal deserts of a small Western town, a man is born to a life of nothing. He feels nothing, knows nothing, experiences nothing until his parents are violently killed and he's sent out into a world of poverty, hunger and desolation. He learns to fend for himself, by begging, then busking. And his eyes are opened. One day he meets a woman also wandering through this desert world: Rocky. Together, they learn to fend for themselves, to survive and then thrive, and then to fall in love.
This is a brutal tale of becoming: becoming human, becoming a member of society, becoming a man. And finally, the redemption of love. From the first sentence, the reader will be hooked, and find himself unable to put down the book until the last, wonderful page.
