Inhaltsangabe:

G.A. Johnson’s debut novel mixes spirituality and with the brutality and filth of street life and addiction.

Life after witnessing his father’s murder at the hands of the Klan was a narcotic waste land that took Murphy Johnson from Neshoba County, Mississippi to Denver, Colorado. He was the man the world walked around; he held a blank cardboard sign, and his eyes were a frozen river. Nothing seemed to move on the surface, but the water was flowing beneath an expression frosted over by four-decades of drugs, alcohol, and concrete beds. Until he reemerged into consciousness under a tree in Civic Center Park.

The Shiner explores the gamut of political chasms in society. The man the world walked around becomes the man who changes the world around him. Murphy is entangled in the lives of an ensemble cast of street dwellers, suburbanites and aristocrats. Besides fighting the ghosts of his past and the desire to fall back into addiction, he fights for survival on the streets and in the world of his new employer—an escort service pimp. Villains are not what they seem and the innocent are less than so, but Murphy embraces them all with a child’s love—even the man who is trying to kill him.

About the Author: I was born on the third of August in the year of our lord nineteen-hundred and eighty-six. If not for a hot check my mother wrote for gasoline, I would have been born in the back of a black Z-28 Camaro. My grandfather danced a jig in the hospital when I was announced to the family as a boy; this was a time when only the rich were able to find out the sex of their unborn babe ahead of time. A writer could not have wished for a better family to grow up in, I come from the most brilliant set of people to ever be mired in the struggles of everyday life. When the beer was poured around the table the stories flowed, and the cast of characters I was born to read like a Steinbeck novel. Death and tight budgets became the norm for us; we were poor but we were not trash, and some of the sweetest memories I have are nights where we dared to be joyful in the face of tragedy. I've spent a lifetime trying to figure out how my mother and the rest of us managed to pull through, and that is why I write. You may say that my style is a bit moralist in a sense, and although I write Christian allegory my work would never be found in a Christian bookstore. Come sit by my side and I’ll tell you things that could make a whore blush, but I promise there is no dingy alley of the human experience I’ll take you down without leading you to the light at the other side.
