You've Got Something Coming

APRIL 24, 2020

“This is the most compelling and emotionally bruising novel I’ve ever read. Trucks’s epic love and endurance to suffer for his daughter, Claudia, spark a northern odyssey I will never forget. Fraught with moral battles, and offering a deep look at the backroads of our country, every page is stamped with grit and grace. I felt punch-drunk, yet renewed after taking this journey, and the language, as cool and crisp as mountain water, announces the arrival of a marvelous talent.” Devin Murphy, bestselling author ofThe Boat Runner and Tiny Americans

You've Got Something Coming is a devastating meditation on love, regret, and perseverance. Part McCarthy, part Carver, Starke’s prose is as lyrical as it is brutal and hits with the intensity of his characters’ jabs. You will be hard pressed to find a novel that is simultaneously gut-wrenching and brimming with the beauty of inextinguishable hope. In fact, you would be hard pressed to find a better novel published this year.” Peter Stenson, bestselling author of Fiend and Thirty-Seven.
