The BASTARDS on the road
THE BASTARDS’ PARADISE is on the road now, headed with a wink into its readers’ hands.
Available in ebook, trade hardcover, and bespoke editions from Roadswell Editions: the bespoke edition comes wrapped in silk, includes pages from the book’s research reading, and a memory box that holds mementos from the road.
The first review – “the final act in a grand epic, a smash of masks and puppetry even when the deep lines must be hidden with grease paint and kohl, the cough stifled with gin and laudanum” – sets the stage. And when another reader opines that “I don’t know if I’ve ever felt such a rich and goddamn unending stream of emotions when reading a book” . . . then that stage is well-set for its play of danger and darkness that, like a mask, hides truest love.
