The Good and the Ghastly: A Novel

Scribner

A wild satire of our own society, The Good and the Ghastly is a visceral novel centered on two people linked through violence, informed by Boice's unnerving sense of reality and pathology.



"A great book" Esquire

"Amped-up…. Follows post-apocalyptic predecessors like A Canticle for Leibowitz in dramatizing man's genius for misconstruing history and compulsively repeating destructive mistakes." Wall Street Journal
