Read full description of the books:



From the award winning author Matt Briggs (author of Shoot the Buffalo and The Remains of River Names) is a story in the tradition of the New Weird where realism melts.

Bret is a young man in his last year of high school haunted by the death of his parents and almost-girlfriend in a rural town in the foothills of the Cascade Mountains in Washington State. He is in his last year of high school living in a rooming house uncertain what the future will bring. He wants to be an adult but is unable to release his immediate past. Just as he organizes his life around forgetting what has happened, he encounters a figure wearing the dead girl’s jacket. Through an unconventional relationship with the an older woman who lives in his rooming house, Miss Eaves, Brett discovers how he can move into the future.

The American Book Review wrote “Briggs’s stories are filled with desperate but game people who are coping with deaths and the wreckage of human connection by taking surprising turns where unglimpsed, if small, openings to sanity and redress can be negotiated.”

Read information about the author

Ebook Snoqualmie read Online! Matt Briggs grew up in the Snoqualmie Valley, raised by working-class, counter-culture parents who cultivated and sold cannabis. Briggs has written two books set in rural Washington chronicling this life, The Remains of River Names and Shoot the Buffalo. Critic Ann Powers wrote of Briggs first book in the New York Times Book Review, "Briggs has captured the America that neither progressives nor family-value advocates want to think about, where bohemianism has degenerated into dangerous dropping out." Briggs has published a number of collection of stories, including The Moss Gatherers and The End is the Beginning. Of his stories, Jim Feast wrote in the American Book Review, "All of Briggs’s zigzagging stories are told with great attention to the details of lowbrow culture and the contours of the American Northwest."
