Product Description

A real gut-punch of a novel, Heavy Metal sings with energy and beauty and honest abandon about grief and hope and trying to find one’s balance in an unsteady world. At a certain point [spoiler alert] the young narrator shoots a bottle out of the sky. “The glass explodes like a bottle rocket,” as he tells it, “the shards glinting in the firelight underneath the gray-lit sky.” The same can be said for this novel and family, both of which explode “like a bottle rocket, the shards glinting in the firelight underneath the gray-lit sky.”
