Order Big Ray

“Big Ray is a disgusting man and a great character. He’s dead at the start of the novel, and it’s impossible not to wish him deader. … Mr. Kimball is not one to flinch”

Praise for Big Ray

“Michael Kimball has been writing innovative, compelling and beautifully felt books for years, but
Big Ray seems a break-through and culmination all at once. It's funny and terrifying and it's his masterpiece, at least so far.”

-- Sam Lipsyte, author of The Ask

“An uncompromising work of power and grace. I finished reading it a week ago, but I still can't put it down."

-- Jon McGregor, author of
This Isn’t the Sort of Thing That Happens to Someone Like You
