A man. No plan. A hamburger commercial. A wild west town. A mess. Black Lawrence Press is proud to present the winner of the inaugural Big Moose Prize. Tracy DeBrincat’s Hollywood Buckaroo takes place in the fictionalized world of Buckaroo, based on the real-life movie set location of Pioneertown, California. A story about a guy coping with his father’s death while living out a twisted version of his dream before returning to a life he dreads, Hollywood Buckaroo is also a love letter to the movies, the afterlife, the high desert, tiny towns and big cities, dysfunctional families, broken hearts, broken legs, the Siamese twins of ambition and humiliation, despair and delight, Hells Angels, celebrity, infamy, William Carlos Williams, the possibility of aliens, and the supreme satisfaction of a really great shower.
