Amazon.com description: Product Description:

"[Vlautin] unearths a world Steinbeck would have recognised...where the American underclass still resides. Lean On Pete is an archetypal American novel, Huck Finn for the crystal-meth generation."
—Independent Extra

Author Willy Vlautin—“a major realist talent”(Seattle Post Intelligencer) who is often compared to Raymond Carver, John Steinbeck, and Denis Johnson—returns with Lean on Pete, the story of a 15-year old boy struggling to make his way to a long lost aunt, who just might give him a home. In the words of author Mark Billingham, “Vlautin is a truly original voice.… [and] one of the best writers in America,” and “Lean on Pete is powerful, heartbreaking stuff.”
