  • Tom Bouman

    Tom Bouman is a former book editor and musician who lives with his wife and daughter in northeastern Pennsylvania.

“Tom Bouman’s lyrical descriptions of rural Pennsylvania, and the violent confrontations that take place there, are so good they give you goosebumps. The Bramble and the Rose is Farrell’s third outing after Dry Bones in the Valley (2015) and Fateful Mornings (2017). It is as brilliant — if not better — than both.”
- The Times
“This is one of those elegiac regional novels that make you want to pull up stakes and move to the country.”
- New York Times
