WINNER OF THE AUTHORS FIRST NOVEL CONTEST
This is not the story of a hero.
So begins the story of one of the most distinctive heroes you'll ever meet. Drafted into a war he barely comprehends with no taste for combat, Pup will find himself thrust into the very center of the conflict. How he affects that conflict, and how this changes him and everyone around him, is the soul of this utterly unique war story.
Equal parts adventure and farce, tragedy and comedy, PUP introduces an unforgettable accidental hero to war literature, and announces Christopher Slater as a resonant new voice.
He was a middle school history teacher creating stories to engage his students. Now, he’s a contest-winning novelist with one of the most distinctive voices we’ve seen. Pup is just the beginning.
