Chapter One Excerpt at The Nervous Breakdown
"Deliciously strange and compelling, delightfully lurid and fun, Scot Sothern's debut novel reads like a feral mashup of Cormac McCarthy and William Gibson amped on cornjuice and spiderbite." -Mark Haskell Smith

"In the latest work of art-prose from the incomparable Stalking Horse Press, Scot Sothern shows that he's not just a linguistic power-hitter, but a dynamic storyteller, too. There's enough imagination on every page of BigCity for an entire novel."   D. Harlan Wilson,author of Battles without Honor or Humanity and Peckinpah: AnUltraviolent Romance

"The job of the novelist is to conjure a whole world, and Scot Sothern has done that in spades here. Lush, large-hearted, antic, and fiercely feminist, BigCity is unlike anything else I've ever read."   Ron Currie, author of Every Thing Matters, The One-Eyed Man

"An explosion of language and characters, a fast-and-loose yet potent and authentic way with our American history, rude and gross and gorgeous and hilarious and heart-rending -- "Big City" is everything you want in a novel, bold and challenging and surprising.  I love it!" - Julie Powell, author of Julie& Julia
