The Royal Family by William T. Vollmann

Since the publication of his first book in 1987, William T. Vollmann has established himself as one of the most fascinating and unconventional literary figures on the scene today. Named one of the twenty best writers under forty by the New Yorker in 1999, Vollmann received the best reviews of his career for The Royal Family, a searing fictional trip through a San Francisco underworld populated by prostitutes, drug addicts, and urban spiritual seekers. Part biblical allegory and part skewed postmodern crime novel, The Royal Family is a vivid and unforgettable work of fiction by one of today's most daring writers.

Author Biography: William T. Vollmann is the author of six novels and three collections of stories; he won the PEN Center USA West Award for Fiction for The Atlas. His journalism and fiction have been published in The New Yorker, Esquire, Spin, Gear, Grand Street, and Outside.
