Moe’s welcomes first time novelist Justin McFarr as we help him launch The Bear Who Broke the World.
Justin McFarr grew up in the Bay Area during the 70’s and 80’s as a latchkey kid. He is a proud graduate of both UCLA and the MPW program at USC, and has attended the New York State Summer Writers Institute at Skidmore College and the Community of Writers at Squaw Valley. His short stories have been published in numerous magazines and online journals, and will be collected in the forthcoming Controlled Chaos: Stories from Wheeler Street Press. He currently lives in Los Angeles with his family. The Bear Who Broke The World is his first novel.
About The Bear Who Broke the World:
1976. Berkeley, California. 11-year-old Daedalus Stephen O’Neill and his 6-year-old brother Demian spend the Bicentennial summer struggling to find normalcy and refuge from the dangerous indifference of the adults that surround them. With an impetuous mother, an unpredictable boyfriend, and a menacing neighbor to protect themselves against, the brothers are forced to navigate their own way through an unrestrained world of drugs, alcohol, and sexual activity.
