Wittliff, The Devil's Backbone

Distinguished screenwriter Bill Wittliff talks about how he spun family-told mysteries into his engrossing first novel.

Set in wild and woolly Texas and Mexico in the 1880s, this engrossing tale of a boy’s search for his missing Momma is as full of colorful characters, folk wit and wisdom, and unexpected turns of events as the great American quest novel Adventures of Huckleberry Finn.
