About The Great Glorious Goddamn of It All: A literary, lively, and lyrical coming-of-age set in the early 1900s in a remote logging town in Idaho. The book is about a young man who’s trying to log an impossibly remote stand of timber to honor his father who died attempting the same task. Good and evil, innocence and debauchery, the themes of the novel are larger than life. Internally at HarperCollins, it’s been compared to the lively storytelling of Mark Twain. But it stands on its own -- this is a book by a gifted novelist, who just happens to be a successful musician. When Ritter announced the book on Twitter he wrote: “it’s the kind of tender-hearted, rowdy adventure story that I’ve wanted to write since I grew up on the side of a mountain in Idaho.”
