'Thrillingly and wrenchingly funny ... like Educated and Hillbilly Elegy' DAVID LIPSKY 'After reading The Good Hand you may reassess whether you have ever truly done a hard day's work in your life ... This lyrical and engrossing memoir is an extraordinary tale ... Undeniably powerful' SUNDAY TIMES The must-read memoir of 2021. Michael Patrick Smith grew up in a ramshackle farmhouse where his father beat the walls and threw dinner plates. As a restless young man left unmoored by the crashing economy, Smith cut a path to North Dakota to rent a mattress on a flophouse floor. Sleeping boot to beard with the other rough-edged men looking to earn a cent drilling for oil, Smith wanted the work to burn him clean - of his violent upbringing, his demons, his disjointed, doomed relationships. He did not expect, among these quick-fisted, foul-mouthed hands, to find a community. The Good Hand is a memoir of danger and exhaustion, of suffering, loneliness and grit, of masculinity and of learning how to reconcile yourself to yourself.
