Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A sweeping novel of our "suburban nation"

In The Huntsman, a first novel hailed by Esquire as "ambitious, rousing and entirely spectacular," Whitney Terrell introduced us to the streets and neighborhoods of Kansas City. Now he offers us the story of their creation. A stunning, intensely private portrait of one man's life and his city, The King of Kings County presents a dazzling fifty-year arc through the heart of the American dream.

Synopsis:

The acclaimed author of "The Huntsman" again takes readers to his native Kansas City for a heartrending look at a young man's coming-of-age as he confronts his father's--and his city's--dissolution.

About the Author
