The Drop Edge of Yonder

Enjoying this book after hearing an interview with Rudy Wurlitzer on Bookworm. The book is an extended adaptation of an un-produced screenplay called Zebulon, which both Sam Peckinpah and Hal Ashby considered making. As a novel it sits on par with Cormac McCarthy for unbridled mountain man darkness. Wurlitzer also wrote the screenplay, and appeared in Monte Hellman's Two Lane Blacktop, losing to James Taylor in a drag race.
