Driving the Heart introduces a new and brilliantly talented voice in American fiction. Brown's thirteen stories centre around the battle against self-destruction, the struggle to transform loss into meaning, the difficulty of connecting with others. They are beautifully crafted and they make you laugh while breaking your heart.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"A luminous collection... Brown's characters are losers, loners, also-rans, junkies: men who have dropped out, don't fit or who are desperate for a second chance. Although they invariably speak the language of failure, disappointment and regret - Brown directs us beyond the pessimism to the point where we find comedy as dark as congealed blood and, without fail, an undimmed faith in humanity's capacity for forgiveness, hope and atonement" * Sunday Times *
"Brown writes carefully structured stories that are simply written and focus upon men who are addicts or losers living in suburban America... Like Carver before him, Brown proves that an intimate map of the heart can be as wide-ranging as an atlas of the world" * The Times *
"Brown is a pure and accomplished talent" * New York Times Book Review *
"Consistently excellent first collection of stories" * Daily Telegraph *
