This snappy, sassy redemption story set in small-town Montana is “a wild and crazy debut novel by a talented young writer” (Jackie Collins), filled with an uproarious and unforgettable cast of characters you won’t want to leave behind.

Welcome to Quinn, Montana, population: 956. A town where nearly all of the volunteer firemen are named Jim, where the Dirty Shame—the only bar in town—refuses to serve mixed drinks (too much work), where the locals hate the newcomers (then again, they hate the locals, too), and where the town softball team has never even come close to having a winning season. Until now. Rachel Flood has snuck back into town after leaving behind a trail of chaos nine years prior. She’s here to make amends, but nobody wants to hear it, especially her mother, Laverna. But with the help of a local boy named Jake and a little soul-searching, she just might make things right. In the spirit of Empire Falls and A League of Their Own, with the caustic wit of Where’d You Go, Bernadette thrown in for good measure, Richard Fifield’s hilarious and heartwarming debut will have you laughing through tears.

Richard Fifield earned his MFA from Sarah Lawrence College in upstate New York. For the past twenty years he has worked as a social worker for adults with intellectual disabilities, while volunteering as a creative writing teacher in Missoula, Montana.

Kathleen Early, a five-time winner of the Earphones Award for audiobook narration, is also a television, film, and stage actress. She studied at the University of Oklahoma, the Oxford School of Drama, and the Actors Theatre of Louisville before moving to New York City, where she understudied on Broadway and toured nationally. Her television credits include recurring roles on Miami Medical and Grey’s Anatomy.

Reviews

The Flood Girls is a wild and crazy debut novel by a talented young writer. Edgy and original, it’s worth the trip.”

“From the first page of The Flood Girls, I knew Richard Fifield was a extraordinary force of nature and his debut novel a masterful tour-de-force. This novel is like Richard Russo + E. Annie Proulx + Truman Capote, if Capote were alive today and narrating a reality show about small-town Montana on Bravo. You will be awed.”

“Excellent…Fifield has created a colorful, quirky, and amusing cast of small-town characters…This hilarious and profane story takes a tragic turn at the end, revealing just how fragile love and friendship can be.”

“A prodigal daughter returns to her hometown in Montana to make amends; mayhem and hilarity ensue…The Wild West earns its name all over again in this lovable chronicle of small-town insanity.”

“Fifield’s debut is an exaggerated, no-holds barred portrait of a small town that doesn’t easily forget or forgive, and it turns alternately laugh-out-loud funny and sadly all-too-true.”

“Caustic wit, absurd plot turns, and an ensemble cast of riotous characters infuse this outlandish yet moving novel about the hard-bitten bonds of community.”

“Richard Fifield’s hilarious and heartwarming debut will have you laughing through tears.”
