About this product
- DescriptionYoung Samson, living in rural New Mexico, abandoned by his father and abused by his mother's lover, has one confidant, his Grampa, and one dream: to save eugh money to buy a gun. But the money is slow in coming, and his tormentor only gets stronger--especially when Samson falls in love with a neighbor, Rosa. As Samson ages, he hardens. His revenge on those who betrayed him takes shocking form. Redemption comes--but it may be too late. Written in a style both spare and intense, The Gun Jar is a searing portrait of an incent young man twisted by cruelty, and an indictment of those who turn their faces away.
