The Good and the Ghastly: A Novel

Scribner



indie bound



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
