Mixing pathos and humor in equal measure, Gregory Hill’s East of Denver is an unflinching novel of rural America, a poignant, darkly funny tale about a father and son finding their way together as their home and livelihood inexorably disappears.
- East of Denver has been optioned for film development by Erin Harper. Erin produced the 2012 Sundance selection, My Best Day. She grew up in eastern Colorado, forty miles north of my hometown. With her filmmaking experience, dedication to the source material, and familiarity with the region, there is no one in the world better suited to this task than Erin.
- The paperback edition of East of Denver will be available on June 25, 2013. The cover is groovy:
