February Book Club Selection: 'Our Love Will Go the Way of the Salmon' by Cameron Pierce

LitReactor Book Club

Every month here at LitReactor, we celebrate reading with a new selection in our Book Club. For February, we will be reading and discussing Our Love Will Go the Way of the Salmon by Cameron Pierce.

Synopsis:

Our Love Will Go the Way of the Salmon is a book of fathers and sons, love lost and regained, haunted pasts, and snake smuggling. From kidnapping to bank robbing, pursuing rainbow trout to unspeakable monsters, from the deserts of Texas to the desolate forests of Oregon, Our Love Will Go the Way of the Salmon is about the extreme measures people take to recapture the ones that got away.

Author:

Cameron Pierce is the author of eleven books, including the Wonderland Book Award-winning collection Lost in Cat Brain Land. His work has appeared in The Barcelona Review, Gray's Sporting Journal, Hobart, The Big Click, and Vol. I Brooklyn, and has been reviewed and featured on Comedy Central and The Guardian. He was also the author of the column Fishing and Beer, where he interviewed acclaimed angler Bill Dance and John Lurie of Fishing with John. Pierce is the head editor of Lazy Fascist Press and has edited three anthologies, including The Best Bizarro Fiction of the Decade. He lives with his wife in Astoria, Oregon.


Discussion for Our Love Will Go the Way of the Salmon will kick off on February 1st, but you should pick up the book and start reading ASAP!  (We've provided a handy link below). Once you're locked and loaded, you can announce your presence in the Book Club. (No invitation needed!)  That thread is where all discussion about the book will go down.

If you read our January Book Club selection, Lost in Space: A Father's Journey There and Back Again by Ben Tanzer, make sure you check out that thread as discussion there has officially started.

Happy reading!
