From the PublisherJohn Vernon, author of A Book of Reasons Don't say: a new novel by Paul West. The correct term is a new Paul West, that is, something completely sui generis. In O.K., West promises then delivers a grand gunfight at the famous corral, but that is hardly the book's heart. The latter instead is an epistolary relationship between Doc Holliday and his cousin, cloistered in a Georgia convent, who discuss among other things the moral structure of the universe as experienced by a dying, consumptive gunslinger. O.K. is a dark and beautiful book by one of the world's finest living writers.
