Publisher Comments:

In The Lone Surfer of Montana, Kansas, Davy Rothbart's stories grow out of road trips and small towns and are populated by questionable heroes and gold-hearted thugs. Full of loneliness and hope, heartbreak and humor, Rothbart's tales blaze their way from midwestern farm fields to state prisons and border-town brothels.

Much like the lost, tossed, and forgotten items Rothbart collected in his acclaimed book, Found, the stories in The Lone Surfer of Montana, Kansas capture the oddity, poetry, and dignity of everyday life.

Review:

"Davy Rothbart's stories make me wanna cry. His mid-west, white boy, thug-with-a-heart aesthetic captivates my brain and stands as the thread that laces together this heartbreaking self-published quintet of short stories. Each piece is crafted, first person, around a soul that is aching to figure out the big picture, but is mired in the here and now with the cards they're dealt." Brian Brait, The Portland Mercury
