Blood (Camel Press) is Seattle writer Jack Remick’s new novel, a taut, open-eyed story written by a one-time mercenary and hired killer doing prison time, due to soon be again free and on the street—a street that wants him in the same hard places that helped put him in prison. His writing helps him see and come to terms with who he is and where he comes from. “Blood does not read so much as it pours forth, lava-hot, like a force of nature. Mitch the killer, collector of ears, Mitch the lover, writing in prison on toilet paper, opens an artery in the American psyche.” – Priscilla Long. “Locked in prison like the soldier-narrator of Jean Genet’s classic, Our Lady of the Flowers, the narrator of Jack Remick’s Blood unwraps his tale by writing a secret book about his mercenary past—killing for money, then verifying his kills with a heavy necklace of human ears. A powerful tale written with total intensity.” – Robert J. Ray.
