Description

Whiskey is bitter to swallow and burns pleasantly as it goes down, but has a lasting, powerful effect on listeners. Brothers Andre and Smoker were raised in a cauldron of their parents' failed marriage and appetite for destruction, and find themselves in the same straits as adults-navigating not only their own marriages, but also their parents' frequent collision with the law and one another. The family lives in Electric City, Washington, just a few miles south of the Colville Indian Reservation. Fiercely loyal and just plain fierce, they're bound by a series of darkly comedic and hauntingly violent events: domestic trouble; religious fanaticism; benders punctuated with pauses to dry out that never stick. When a religious zealot takes off with Smoker's daughter, there's no question that his brother-who continues doggedly to try and put his life in order-will join him in an attempt to return her. Maybe the venture will break them both beyond repair or maybe it will redeem them. Or perhaps both. Whiskey is an audiobook about two brothers, their parents, and three wrecked marriages, a searching examination of family life at its most distressed-about kinship, failure, enough liquor to get through it all, and ultimately a dark and hard-earned grace. With an authentic literary voice all his own, Bruce Holbert traverses the harsh landscape of America's northwestern border and finds a family unlike any you've met before.
