Rust and Bone conjures a savage world of prizefighters, gamblers and sex addicts; dogs fight to the death and bare-knuckled men fight for survival on the most extreme margins. And yet these gritty stories are tempered by gentleness, the quiet understanding in the most intimate relationships.
A whale trainer's accident, a boy's life endangered - where human vulnerability is so close to the surface, the humanity of these characters heralds redemption and hope.
