High and Inside
Released June 13, 2013
When Pete Hurley, a former pitcher for the Boston Red Sox, moves to Bozeman, Montana to build a house, he has much bigger ulterior motives, mainly leaving behind the memories of two tragic accidents that left two people seriously injured. But Pete’s drinking gets in the way of both making progress on his house as well as healing from his own personal wounds. So he eventually has to make the difficult decision to go back to Massachusetts and face his demons. High and Inside explores the mind of an alcoholic on the verge of despair, and how he manages to justify his behavior even in the face of losing everything, until he faces the consequences of his drinking.
High and Inside Reviews
“Richly and intimately told, High and Inside is a raucous tragicomedy, infused with the desire we all feel in the face of our greatest mistakes: to somehow win redemption, no matter how large our flaws.”
-Kim Barnes, author of In the Kingdom of Men
“At times funny, at times tragic, often wise and always moving, this wonderful novel is a grand slam of indelible characters and infectious drama, and a flat-out great read.”
