A Novel of Moving WeightDownloadable Audiobook - 2011
James and Kate are golden children of the late twentieth century, flush with opportunity. But an economic downturn and an unexpected pregnancy send them searching for a way to survive. A friend in California's Siskiyou County grows prime-grade marijuana; if James transports just one load from Cali to Florida, he'll pull down enough cash to survive for months. And so begins the life of a mule. A zeitgeist-capturing novel that plunges you into the criminal underworld with little chance to take a breath, Mule is about young people trying to make do in a moment when the American Dream they never had to believe in-because it was handed to them, fully wrapped and ready to go at the takeout window-suddenly vanishes from the menu.
