  • About the Edition

    Set in a bitterly benighted, mine-polluted corner of Virginia, Nitro Mountain follows a group of people bound together by alcohol, small-time crime and music. There"s Leon, a hapless bass player who can embroil himself in trouble just by getting out of bed in the morning. And his would-be girlfriend, Jennifer, who"s living with Arnett, the town"s most dangerous thug-- and hoping Leon will help her poison him. And there"s Arnett himself, a psychopath for the ages-- albeit so charming and deranged, so strikingly authentic, that he arrests the reader"s attention at first sight and holds it fast. His mirror image, a singer-songwriter named Jones, has his own moral issues, though at least he"s trying to be a good man. The bright if battered soul who pulls us through this story is Jennifer, a vulnerable yet strong woman struggling heroically to survive the endemic hopelessness and violence that have surrounded her since birth -- Dust jacket flap.

    The Bordon post office, the library, empty storefronts and a couple shops that hadn’t gone under yet. And then the abandoned Dairy Queen, my sister’s apartment complex and this diner. North of town off , toward Nitro Mountain, were the gas station and the Foodville grocery . The Nitro Mountain happily surprised me. What a cool freeride snowboard this is. And so versatile too. With the Mountain I could aggressively attack powder and win every time. Charging hard, the Nitro Mountain rewards you immediately. As responsive as it is, it still feels a bit freestylish too.

    An astonishing, even shocking debut written with both humor and heart by, as John Casey puts it, "a natural-born writer who inhabits every one of his characters&#;the good, the bad, and those who swing back and forth." Set in a bitterly benighted, mine-polluted corner of Virginia, Nitro Mountai.   Cover to cover, the book exerts a fierce magnetic pull, sucking its reader into a profound desolation. I kept picking it up and sniffing it, expecting to get a strong draft of bourbon, man-sweat, blood and dirt — as of a freshly dug grave In its setting and conflicts, Nitro Mountain belongs to the Southern gothic literary tradition, but it shares pacing and plot moves with some of the.

About Nitro Mountain. In the mine-riddled town of Bordon, Virginia, a group of lost souls are bound together by alcohol, small-time crime, and music.

Appalachian noir at its darkest and most deranged. When a doctor suggests to one of the emotionally (and physically) battered women in this powerfully bleak novel that she may be suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder, she responds bitterly that she’s far too young for Vietnam, though the reader recognizes that life in the Nitro Mountain book of the titular Nitro Mountain is its own minefield.
