F 250

F250 Cover_RGB


Lee Casey plays guitar in a noise band called Ottermeat, about to leave NJ, to try and make it in Los Angeles. For now, he’s squatting in a collapsing house, working as a stone mason, driving a jacked up pickup truck that he crashes into everything. As a close friend Ods in his sleep, Lee falls into a three-way relationship with two college girls, June Doom and K Neon. F250 is a novel equal parts about growing up, and being torn apart.

“Bud Smith is Nick Hornby if you strapped him to a Tesla coil and fired him into a Sun made of Poetry.”  — Ben Loory, author of Stories for Nighttime and Some for the Day
“Refreshing. Bud is a Good one.” — Otherppl with Brad Listi
“The working-class romance in F-250 is hard to miss, with drug addiction, home eviction, and random violence the abyss the music is meant to hold off, at least for the length of a song.” — The Rumpus
