Deliciously strange and compelling, delightfully lurid and fun, Scot Sothern’s debut novel reads like a feral mashup of Cormac McCarthy and William Gibson amped on cornjuice and spiderbite. -Mark Haskell Smith

In the latest work of art-prose from the incomparable Stalking Horse Press, Scot Sothern shows that he’s not just a linguistic power-hitter, but a dynamic storyteller, too. There’s enough imagination on every page of BigCity for an entire novel. – D. Harlan Wilson, author of Battles without Honor or Humanity and Peckinpah: An Ultraviolent Romance

The job of the novelist is to conjure a whole world, and Scot Sothern has done that in spades here. Lush, large-hearted, antic, and fiercely feminist, BigCity is unlike anything else I’ve ever read. – Ron Currie, author of Every Thing Matters, The One-Eyed Man

An explosion of language and characters, a fast-and-loose yet potent and authentic way with our American history, rude and gross and gorgeous and hilarious and heart-rending — “Big City” is everything you want in a novel, bold and challenging and surprising. I love it! – Julie Powell, author of Julie& Julia

Scot Sothern’s profane western satire Big City, is a novel with an unforgettable cast, including the wild Bitch Bantam, pulp writer Slab Pettibone, and his sidekick FuzzyWuzzy the bear in a tale as moving as it is scandalous. Big City  is the birth of feminism, robber barons, media stardom, and motion pictures, where teeming masses have come for a new life and a throw of the dice; with gritty realism and absurdist comedy, Big City is a fantastical adventure and love story examining the dynamics of change and the politics of natural selection.
