"A singular new voice . . . [Michael Bible] is so open, so easy, so fluid, you'll smile with joy turning every page." -Barry Hannah

After an adolescent prank leads to a stranger's death, Alvis Maloney rambles westward. He lands in a small North Carolina town and falls in love-in love with his neighbor Molly, with a lonesome quarterback called Miles, with a whole community of enduring misfits and losers.

But at the same time, another life takes shape in Maloney's dreamlike visions: a horse named Forever, a princess with hypochondria, and an electric city that's always just out of reach. As these two promises of home fight for their hold on Maloney, the story careens toward disaster, and in the end Maloney must choose between love and redemption.

From the author Electric Literature called "one of the most interesting and exciting new novelists in years," Michael Bible's Empire of Light blooms with mystical imagination and a hopeful heart.



Résumé

A prequel to Michael Bible's Sophia, Gaucho feature a young Maloney and his adoptive father, Frank, who often get into trouble together in their small Carolina town--partly due to Maloney's expansive heart.
