Joey Soloway, Julianne Moore Team To Adapt Trucking Memoir Mothertrucker
Excerpts of Mothertrucker awarded a 2020 Individual Excellence Award by the Ohio Arts Council, judges call it 'well researched, 'very well-written,' and 'a positive antidote to the trauma of violence against women'
Mothertrucker forthcoming in German translation by HarperCollins for Fall 2022/Spring 2023 publication
“Amy Butcher’s Mothertrucker is both an intimate portrait of an unforgettable woman and a powerful exploration of how the author finds her way to a more courageous life. There’s truth and beauty on every page of this gorgeous and gripping book.”
AUTHOR OF WILD
“I used to wonder what it would feel like to read a nonfictive piece of art that read like a literary novel, a mystery, a feature, the best of travel writing and welcoming theory. Now I know. A lot will be written about what Amy Butcher pulls off in this book. It’s the how that is unsettling in the best way, the how that moves this book from remarkable to a gritty greatness we seldom experience in American literature.”
KIESE LAYMON, AUTHOR OF HEAVY
AND LONG DIVISION
“A beautifully written exploration of a woman’s endeavor to let go of fear and open herself to joy. Can the divine be found on the most dangerous ice road in Alaska? Or is it through our own souls’ journeys toward a most loving and merciful understanding of our own courage and pain? Or both and more? Amy Butcher takes us along for the ride with exquisite writing and heart-pounding yearning.”
CREATOR OF "TRANSPARENT" AND "I LOVE DICK"
