The Double E
In the shadow of the Boeing plant where the first commercial jet liner was assembled, a family lives in a house in a rural landscape filled with stumps, streams chocked with the dead salmon, and no one who can help.
The Strong Man
Matt Briggs shows us the realities of the “new war” that started with the Gulf War. In clear, strong prose he takes us deep into the truth of that forgotten, almost invisible, but tragic war. -- Tom Paine
Shoot the Buffalo
"Not since the emergence of Sherman Alexie has the Northwest produced such a unique narrative voice."
-- The Oregonian
The End is the Beginning
"Briggs’s style is expressionist, and has the eerie, detached quality of Barry Yourgrau, Lydia Davis and Russell Edson." -- The Raven Chronicles
The Moss Gatherers
"All of Briggs’s zigzagging stories are told with great attention to the details of lowbrow culture and the contours of the American Northwest."
-- The American Book Review
"As accurate as Briggs’ realistic settings are, it is this amorphous “something else” seeping through his new book that makes it seem so Northwest to me."
-- The Stranger
The Remains of River Names
"Briggs has captured the America that neither progressives nor family-value advocates want to think about, where bohemianism has degenerated into dangerous dropping out."
-- The New York Times Book Review
