* * FINALIST FOR THE WWA 2019 Award for BEST WESTERN CONTEMPORARY NOVEL * * Told from the perspective of a high school girl and a football coach, Broken Field reveals the tensions that tear at the fabric of a small town when a high school hazing incident escalates and threatens a championship season. Set on the high prairies of Montana, in small towns scattered across vast landscapes, the distances in Broken Field are both insurmountable and deeply internalized. Life is dusty and hard, and men are judged by their labor. Women have to be tougher yet. That's what sixteen-year-old Josie Frehse learns as she struggles to meet the expectations of her community while fumbling with her own desires. Tom Warner coaches the Dumont Wolfpack, an eight-man football team, typical for such small towns. Warner is stumbling through life, numbed by the death of his own young son and the dissolution of his marriage. But he's jolted into taking sides when his star players are accused of a hazing incident that happened right under his nose. The scandal divides and ignites the town and in Broken Field, Jeff Hull brilliantly gives breadth and depth to both sides of this fractured community, where the roots of bullying reach deep, secrets are buried, and, in a school obsessed with winning, everyone loses.
Marshall is learning to love the land. He's in the process of

Poetry. Subpress collective is a group of nineteen individuals who publish nineteen books each year in an effort to promote the work of younger writers and writers whose work would otherwise be inaccessible to the public. Each member chooses one book to edit and promote, and Kevin Davies made a very wise choice with Jeff Hull's SPOOR. Full of poems brief in length, yet lasting in impact, SPOOR explores the subtleties of day to day existence as well as the impact of other writers. "Tossing the bookmark/ away, he said/ I'm ready, she said/ let's go" - from My Book of Plots and Providences.
Every once in a great while, a new writer comes along who brings to
outdoor literature a freshness and electricity that rivals not only
the best of the genre, but those writers who transcend the
genre--from Ernest Hemingway to Jim Harrison. Jeff Hull is such a
writer. In Streams of Consciousness, he regales readers with
humility and hilarity, taking us from the robust trout streams of
Montana to the salty shores of New England to the spring creeks of
Chile's Patagonia and beyond. He is writing about fly fishing--and
everything but fly fishing. In Montana he fishes fabled trout
streams in twilight, the magical time, when the day is running down
and while his brother's time is literally running out. In Belize,
Hull, obsessed with permit, attempts to catch a grand slam: tarpon,
permit, and bonefish all in one day. In a muddy Ohio creek, as a
tube-sock wearing teen, Hull and his friends catch bass and
navigate the murky waters of love, respect, and hormones. In a
small pond on the grounds of a psychiatric hospital in Kansas, he
fishes, pulling bluegill out of the water along with an essential
part of his identity.
