Christopher Irvin - Ragged - Signed

"An absorbing tale of mystery and longing and the dark struggles of the human condition, I was completely swept up by this anthropomorphized society." -Diane Les Becquets, NYT-bestselling author of Breaking Wild

"Ragged is a vivid fever dream, mixing Roald Dahl, Wes Anderson, Watership Down, and Jim Thompson. As impressive and convincing the world Irvin creates is, the real triumph is how his society of anthropomorphized beasties are more human than human. I wish I wrote this." -Paul Tremblay, author of A Head Full of Ghosts and Disappearance at Devil's Rock

In a feral twist on crime fiction, Cal, a mutt with a criminal past, must avenge the death of his wife and protect his pups from the inherent darkness of nature and the cold cruelness of the looming winter.

Step inside this unforgettable anthropomorphic tale of love and revenge, as Wind in the Willows meets Fargo and Irvin's signature slice-of-life crime takes on a whole new realm.

Specializing in Mystery Fiction and all its subgenres, including Detective, Crime, Hardboiled, Thrillers, Espionage, and Suspense.
