"Joseph Mattson writes like a guitar player with nineteen fingers--everywhere at once, stinging, dark and beautiful. EMPTY THE SUN will take you to some strange places, but the trip is amazing. Mattson has written a truly inventive and vivid novel."

-- Jerry Stahl, author of PERMANENT MIDNIGHT and I, FATTY

JAMES FREY, author of A Million Little Pieces and Bright Shiny Morning
