Jury Citation

“Wyatt Thurst” is so lovingly polished it glows. Following two bull riders in the minors through their rodeo circuit, the electrifying and compulsively readable narrative whip snaps like your spine on an eight-second ride. What is left unspoken haunts the pages as much as the keenly observed details of the world that the author has built.
