Bruce Machart and Benoit Denizet-Lewis, Men in the Making and American Anonymous and American Voyeur

“Bruce Machart’s protagonists know work--whether it’s loading cedar logs into debarking drums or scouring the sludge from a drill rig’s void tanks--and they know denial, and self-denial, and compassion, because they’re mostly good men undone by loss, and by their own resentments and shortcomings. Men in the Making is a stirring and impressive collection.”

Jim Shepard, author of You Think That’s Bad

"Benoit Denizet-Lewis writes with an impressive mix of transparency and compassion about the addict's eternal battle between will and action. He sees deep into the sadness of desperate people, and equally deep into the systems that redeem such sadness. This is an intimate, compelling volume."

Andrew Solomon, author of The Noonday Demon: An Atlas of Depression
