This is a past event.
When: Mon., Oct. 9, 7 p.m. 2017
Price: free

Eclectic indie filmmaker, Southern crime-fiction author, and occasional INDY contributor Eryk Pruitt is at it again in What We Reckon, his third novel, which you can get your grubby mitts on a day early at this release party. We reckon it stars a pair of grifters, a slick yet paranoid con artist named Jack Jordan and a possibly schizophrenic mastermind named Summer Ashton, toting a King James Bible full of blow and a host of interpersonal drama through East Texas. We reckon it's self-described as "Trainspotting cut with a couple grams of Helter Skelter." And we reckon it's a milestone for Pruitt, as it's being released by New York's Polis Books, which also rereleased his first two self-published novels, Dirtbags and Hashtag, last month. The Regulator party, cohosted by mystery novelist and 2016 Piedmont Laureate Katy Munger, kicks off a tour that lams as far as Canada before slinking back into Durham to conclude on Dec. 7 with Noir at the Bar, the crime-fiction convention Pruitt hosts at 106 Main each year. —Brian Howe
