F250: A Novel (2015)

$12.00 / On Sale

Lee Casey plays guitar in a noise band called Ottermeat, about to leave NJ, to try and make it in Los Angeles. For now, he’s squatting in a collapsing house, working as a stone mason, driving a jacked up pickup truck that he crashes into everything. As a close friend Ods in his sleep, Lee falls into a three-way relationship with two college girls, June Doom and K Neon. F250 is a novel equal parts about growing up, and being torn apart.

"Bud Smith is a great writer. F250 is full of Jager shots, blood, BMW hatred, and people with their faces ripped off." - Scott McClanahan, author of Crapalachia and Hill William

"Bud Smith's F250 is a poetic and powerful novel of sex, drugs and rock and roll." - Largehearted Boy

“Bud Smith is Nick Hornby if you strapped him to a Tesla coil and fired him into a Sun made of Poetry.” — Ben Loory, author of Stories for Nighttime and Some for the Day

“Refreshing. Bud is a Good one.” — Other People podcast with Brad Listi

“The working-class romance in F-250 is hard to miss, with drug addiction, home eviction, and random violence, the abyss the music is meant to hold off, at least for the length of a song.” — The Rumpus
