Hemingway First Novel Award Winner.

The passionate mystery of a son’s compulsive search for his father’s bones—a quest that draws him into an exotic Mexican underworld of sex, mysticism, drugs, and sudden violence.

Sensual but gritty, vibrant but darkly poignant, Flesh exposes the simmering passions—fired by jealousy, vengeance, love, lust, and greed—when Anglo and Hispanic cultures clash.

Finalist for the Willa Cather Prize.
