Description

In Monument Valley, John Wayne's iconic status as a tough cowboy, Hollywood star, and American hero is forever tilted after a Navajo movie actor is fired for refusing to die on set. In Sherwood, Arizona, the Duke's reputation is put on trial when history comes to collect its debts after a new sheriff comes to town, a teacher is fired, a movie theatre hosts a controversial guest speaker, a hero named Mercy rises in the new west, and China reaches new heights. Frame by frame, a young projectionist pieces together the deleted scenes that begin to unravel something much closer to the truth that is Marion Morrison (a.k.a. "John Wayne"). And, to quiet any suspicions surrounding these events, a host of celebrity cameos from Jimmy Stewart, Kirk Douglas, Walt Disney, Clark Gable, director John Ford, Senator Joseph McCarthy, and Nancy & Ronald Regan all join in and take part in John Wayne's Execution.



Auteur

Patrick Baker was born in New York, grew up in the Netherlands and the United States. He has earned degrees from all three state universities in Arizona, including an M.A. in Creative Writing from Northern Arizona University, and still resides in the desert. Beyond his writerly life, he spends time as a novice metal detectorist and an amateur film critic. His short film, The Barbaric Yawp, was selected for the Zia Film Fest. Twice he was awarded for his volunteer work with Big Brothers Big Sisters of Central Arizona for "Most Fun Big Brother" and "Best Big Brother of the Year." He appeared as an extra in Robert Altman's The Player. In the 1970s, he starred in Weebles toy commercials that aired regularly on Captain Kangaroo. Patrick is known to travel to unrealistic distances for a cup of coffee. This is Patrick's first novel. His second novel, The Vagina Triangle, will be released in 2019.
