* * 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 transforming his father's ranch into prime spring creek fishing, literally molding the land as he attempts to fashion himself.
He's a guide, along with his two closest friends, Molly and Alton. All three are trying to step out of a youthful fascination with the freewheeling, fish-guiding life, and into a sustainable life on the land and water of Montana. "Pale Morning Done" is a coming-of place novel, in which Marshall must decide between the woman who wants him and the woman who loves him; between the future desired by his father and the future created by himself; between the truth that will bind and the omission that will free. It is about the tides that toss friends, sometimes against each other, and ultimately unites them against enemies. It is about the delicate balance of our lives that violence can abruptly topple.
Beautifully written, this first novel scours the landscape of emotion as it revels in the physical landscape of Montana. "Pale Morning Done" is sure to place Jeff Hull in the company of other great chroniclers of the new West, including Norman McLean, William Kittredge, and Tom McGuane.

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.
Streams of Consciousness is not just fine writing about sport and filled with wonderful characters and spectacular fishing adventures, though it is that, too. These gemlike encounters shimmer with insight. Like bolts of lightning, they illuminate all that surrounds them. You don't need to have ever picked up a fly rod for these pieces to speak to you; you need only to have an appreciation for literature that works its way deeper into your consciousness long after you've closed the covers of the book.
