"I really enjoyed listening to this audiobook, for me it is insightful and inspiring. I am using it as a learning aid as I commence my own fool's journey. It’s powerful and gifted narrative suits my own particular learning style and helps give my journey perspective and structure, like the tarot." BC
"I really loved this book, I will be buying book 2 and 3 of this series for sure. It helped me to reflect on my life giving deeper meaning and shedding light on some of the cards I don't like to see when pulling cards for myself. It truly kept me captivated and interested to see how Follin felt after getting to the World card. Can't wait for his journey through the pentacles." C

In the tradition of Colson Whitehead's Zone One, a visionary debut novel about shelter, escape, family, violence, and dumpster-diving.
It's the story of a restless group of young squatters. They've run away from their families and their pasts, questing after knowledge of their most wild selves, roaming the half-empty suburbs of America, occupying the homes of the foreclosed or vacationing, never staying in one place long enough to attract attention, while shoplifting beer at the local Speedy Stop. They're building a new society with new laws, and no one will stand in their way.
But utopias are hard work, and as Rules for Werewolves unfolds, these young revolutionaries discover that it's much easier to break laws than to enforce them. Narrated in the shifting perspectives of the pack, Rules for Werewolves follows a community of drifters on the move, who seek a life in a wilderness that, by definition, has no room for them, and a freedom for which they may not be entirely prepared.
Kirk Lynn's debut novel is a hilarious and deeply moving story of people trying-and failing-to create a new life. At once a fractured fairy tale and a haunting vision of American disaffection, Rules for Werewolves marks the arrival of a fierce new talent.
