Powered by adept characterization, darkly lyrical prose, and an unexpected but oh-so-perfect ending, this is the literary equivalent of a slot machine jackpot. --Publishers Weekly (starred review) Forest of Fortune tells the story of three haunted souls--an alcoholic, an epileptic, and a gambling addict--who try to turn their luck around at a decrepit Indian casi. But something's t right at Thunderclap Casi. As the three of them come to terms with the ways in which they are haunted by the past and struggle with their addictions, they must confront the malevolent force that won't rest until old wrongs have been made right. Beguiling, nimble, and wonderfully weird, Forest of Fortune is an out-of-left-field gem. --Patrick deWitt, author of The Sisters Brothers Forest of Fortune captures the soul and voice of hard-luck, hard-living Americans... --Jerry Stahl, author of Permanent Midnight
