2013 Evil Companions Literary Award

The Tattered Cover Book Store, the Oxford Hotel and David Milofsky are pleased to announce the recipient of the 2013 Evil Companions Literary Award is Ron Hansen, author of The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford and Mariette in Ecstasy.

Jesse James was a fabled outlaw, a charismatic, spiritual, larger-than-life bad man whose bloody exploits captured the imagination and admiration of a nation hungry for antiheroes. Robert Ford was a young upstart torn between dedicated worship and murderous jealousy, the "dirty little coward" who coveted Jesse's legend. The powerful, strange, and unforgettable story of their interweaving paths—and twin destinies that would collide in a rain of blood and betrayal—is a story of America in all her rough, conflicted glory and the myths that made her.

The highly acclaimed and provocatively rendered story of a young postulant's claim to divine possession and religious ecstasy.
