BOOK EXCERPT:

For a long time now, Edward Falco has quietly established his place among the absolute best American storytellers. Those who haven’t yet read him don’t want to miss this chance. That’s why we’re so excited to offer the very best of his work, gathered together for the first time, to a wider readership. Falco’s stories are unforgettable, dangerous as a high-wire act without a net, filled with dramatic action, and peopled with believable characters challenged by events into making risky moral choices, so emotionally true that readers will carry them around for a long time. His prose is tense, sharp, and beautifully, wonderfully rich. In story after story, Falco’s characters find the comfortable order of their lives ambushed by an upswelling of dark forces beyond their control. In order to protect the lives of family—lovers, wives, and especially children—from a catastrophe, they often must summon up the personal courage to climb back from their own monsters, to set aside old, private scars. The decisions they make reveal their bonds, the set of their hearts, and the harsh nature of the culture we all live in today. If someone out there could write the contemporary counterpart to Flannery O’Conoor’s classic “A Good Man is Hard to Find,” it would be Falco. His are good, old-fashioned, hard-to-find stories set way out there on the edge.

BOOK EXCERPT:

Set during the Great Depression and based in part on real characters and a series of historical events, Toughs follows the story of Loretto Jones as he finds his life intertwined with the fate of Vince Coll, a 23-year-old Irish gangster who for a brief moment rose to the level of a national celebrity during his war with Dutch Schultz, Owen Madden, and Lucky Luciano. Tagged “Mad Dog Coll” after killing five-year-old Michael Vengelli in a botched assassination attempt, Coll was the subject of a shoot-to-kill order issued by New York City Police Commissioner Edward P. Mulrooney, a $50,000 bounty offered by Dutch Shultz and Owen Madden, and $30,000 in reward money from by the Patrolmen’s Benevolent Association and the city’s newspapers. Loretto and Vince are bound to each other by years spent in an orphanage and on the streets, but in the summer of 1931, with Loretto in love with newly-divorced Gina Baronti, and Vince in thrall to the beautiful Lottie Kriesberger, their world of tough guys in tough times is hurtling toward disaster, and Loretto finds himself faced with impossible choices.

BOOK EXCERPT:

Tom “T” Walker, a 57-year-old businessman, knows better than to pick up a beautiful young woman hitchhiking with her dangerous-looking boyfriend, but he stops for them anyway. He’s been living alone, his life ruinously off course, in such utter isolation from everyone he has ever loved that he welcomes the company and the excitement. But as T finds himself pulled into the chaos of their world in a way he will barely survive, he comes to see his personal history and experiences in an altered and troubling light. Edward Falco brings stunning emotional depth and tense action to unforgettable characters as they journey through the mundane world to places where illusions fail and they must face their hidden selves.

BOOK EXCERPT:

Recently, Grand Central Publishing announced plans for a prequal to Mario Puzo's The Godfather, to be written by our very own Ed Falco - of whom the New York Times Book Review noted, "There is in Mr. Falco's fiction a little of Raymond Carver's sensitivity to the menace of the everyday, and a lot of Andre Dubus's sturdy empathy with his characters' failings and regrets." The Family Corleone will hit bookstores everywhere in May - but you don't need to wait that long to read Falco and discover why he is such an obviously perfect choice for the Corleone family. You can read excerpts now from the "compelling," "vivid," "intense," and "brilliant" books of master storyteller, Ed Falco. This sampler includes excerpts from: SAINT JOHN OF THE FIVE BORUOUGHS - a beautifully turned, stunning and layered novel about the effects of violence, abandonment, and the nature of redemption. Edward Falco once again proves to be a master of urgency and suspense, of events careening out of control, as he brilliantly explores why we make the choices we make - both the ones that threaten to destroy our lives, and those choices that might save us. WOLF POINT - a taut, dramatic literary thriller that examines betrayal, trust and forgiveness. Driven as much by its sizzling story as by it razor-sharp prose, Wolf Point delivers the powerful tale of a man who realizes, perhaps too late, that he actually has something to live for. Edward Falco brings stunning emotional depth and tense action to unforgettable characters as they journey toward places where human illusions fail and they must face their hidden selves. SABBATH NIGHT IN THE CHURCH OF THE PIRANHA - for some years now, Ed Falco has quietly established his place among the absolute best American storytellers. Falco's stories are dangerous as a high-wire act without a net, filled with dramatic action and peopled with believable characters challenged by events into making risky moral choices, so emotionally true that the readers will carry them around for a long time. The decisions Falco's characters make reveal their bonds, the set of their hearts, and the harsh nature of the world we all live in today.
