In celebration of Read Aloud Day, we snagged this impossibly good exclusive snippet of Eric Shonkwiler’s new audiobook version of his critically acclaimed debut novel, Above All Men. The audiobook is published by Fiddleblack, with narration by Dane Elcar. It is a story of both our future and past, and it shows us a lumbering, desolate landscape that is incapably alive. You can find the audiobook and more information about it on Fiddleblack, Audible, Amazon, and iTunes.

Years from now, America is slowly collapsing. Crops are drying up and oil is running out. People flee cities for the countryside, worsening the drought and opening the land to crime. Amid this decay and strife, war veteran David Parrish fights to keep his family and farm together. However, the murder of a local child opens old wounds, forcing him to confront his own nature on a hunt through dust storms and crumbling towns for the killer.
