"A miracle of literary serendipity, a triumph." --The Washington Post

A young medic returns from deployment in Iraq to two things: the woman he loves, and the opioid crisis sweeping across the Midwest. Soon deep in the thrall of heroin addiction, he arrives at what seems like the only logical solution: robbing banks. Written by a singularly talented, wildly imaginative debut novelist, Cherry is a bracingly funny and unexpectedly tender work of fiction straight from the dark heart of America.

"The first great novel of the opioid epidemic." --Vulture

"A buzzsaw of a novel. . . . Bracingly original." --The Wall Street Journal

"Cherry is a profane, raw, and harrowingly timely account of the effects of war and the perils of addiction." --Entertainment Weekly

"A raw coming-of-age story in reverse. . . . Cherry touches on some of the darkest chapters of recent American history." --The New York Times

"Aptly compared to Jesus' Son and Reservoir Dogs, Cherry] is a devastating example of art imitating life." --Esquire
