August Likes My Hue is a story of love and heartbreak, faith and doubt. Stepping out of Stars Below the Concrete’s fantasy world into the Southern waters of his upbringing, Quinn constructs a haunting tale that lingers long after turning the last page.
Luther knows God must die, and August knows her husband is too stubborn to make up the far-fetched claim. But neither knows if it is possible to kill God. August Likes My Hue is a tale that pushes the boundaries of spirituality and marriage. Winding through new towns and driven by the quest to kill God, August and Luther are brought face to face with their own humanity and flaws. Never one to give up on her husband, August is determined to stick with Luther until the end, even if he insists that the end means death. Along the way, they meet strangers who will inform their answers, discover places that define their journey, and battle to stay faithful to Luther’s killing mission.
Combining the lyrical style of the Beat Generation and the dark hope of Southern Literature August Likes My Hue deconstructs and rebuilds what love looks like in the face of life’s most challenging questions.
Will you stay with August and Luther until the end?
