A dead body... Gunshots... A bewildered ghost mentored by a cowboy angel... Big Hungry is the story of a small-town murder mystery as it unfolds through the eyes of the many colorful characters of rural Tulleyville, North Dakota. From the nosy news reporter to the town drunk, to the spooky loner who lives on the outskirts of town, each quirky Tulleyville resident's perspective unravels another thread revealing their collective fate. Will the town be flooded to benefit a millionaire's pet project? Who are the River Rats, and are they dangerous? Will the greasy politician get away with bribery, kidnapping, or worse? And, will the backwoods, one-man police investigation be able to reveal the shooter's identity?
Intertwining his townspeople's idiosyncrasies with unexpected action and twists, Clausen paints a picture of an endearing slice of humanity that is, like all of us, proud, loyal, and occasionally a little crooked.
In his irreverent and witty first novel, Clausen's vivid, salty storytelling pulls the reader along swiftly on the current of his characters' unpredictable whims and wills. At times warmly comedic, profane, and profound, Big Hungry's heart lies within the understated pathos of its unforgettable characters.
