Coming soon: The Fallow Season of Hugo Hunter

hugo cover The Fallow Season of Hugo Hunter, Craig's fourth novel, is set for a November 1st release by Lake Union Publishing. It's the story of a beaten-down boxer, seen through the eyes of the sportswriter who has covered him for twenty years. Sports columnist Tim Kawakami of the San Jose Mercury News, a longtime boxing observer, says of the new book: "All of this feels so real and so lived-in ... I've wondered more than a few times, how does this end? Will anyone survive it?” To learn more about the new book, please visit its page. For more about Craig's other work, visit the books page.
