More Description

"Reading D. Foy's prose is like watching Robert Stone and Wallace Stevens drag race across a frozen lake at midnight."--Anthony Swofford

Two days before New Years, a pack of five friends--three men and two women--head to a remote cabin near Lake Tahoe to celebrate the holidays. They've been buddies forever, banded together by scrapes and squalor, their relationships defined by these wild times.

After a car accident leaves one friend sick and dying, and severe weather traps them at the cabin, there is nowhere to go, forcing them to finally and ultimately take stock and confront their past transgressions, considering what they mean to one another and to themselves.

With some of the most luminous and purple prose flexed in recent memory, D. Foy is an incendiary new voice and "Made to Break," a grand, episodic debut, redolent of the stark conscience of Denis Johnson and the spellbinding vision of Roberto Bolano.

D. Foy has had work published or forthcoming in "BOMB," "Post Road," the" Literary Review," the" Georgia Review," "Forty Stories: New Writing from Harper Perennial," and "Laundromat," an homage to photographs of laundromats throughout New York City (powerHouse Books).
