"An emotional and utterly romantic--in the truest sense of the word--debut." --Emily Henry, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Funny Story

Living in the home he inherited from his mother and abandoned by his father, painter and construction worker Cash has never known anything beyond the fields of Johnston, WI--never particularly wanted to, either. Why would he when his friends are there, his work is there, his history is there? He loves Johnston. But when an emerald-eyed stranger named Rose blows into town one summer evening in his favorite local bar, everything changes. It's love at first sight. For Cash, anyway.

What follows is an intimate reflection on the love, faith, and tragedy that courses through the blood of America's backbone. Cash and his closest friends find themselves vital threads in the fabric of their community, the memory of those forgotten, and partners in a new enterprise. A bluesey ode to the Beat generation for the modern era, Blue Graffiti is writer Calahan Skogman's poetic debut brimming with an essential freedom, romance, and longing for a bygone era.



“You’ll feel echoes of Kerouac and The Outsiders in this poetic debut novel about fathers and sons, of boys becoming men, of what it feels like to be caught between the helium of dreams and the ceiling of small-town American reality.” —Jodi Picoult, #1 NYT bestselling author

Blue Graffiti is a big-hearted, hypnotic ode to the American Midwest, the waning days of youth, and the power of love to break, heal, and remake us a thousand times over. An emotional and utterly romantic—in the truest sense of the word—debut." —Emily Henry, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Funny Story

“The fabric of this story feels well-worn and delicate. Skogman speaks with such an assured familiarity of the characters and spaces in Blue Graffiti, like a tour guide driving you around his hometown. And within every seemingly mundane moment, he directs your attention to the bit of magic and mystery imbued in it.” —Eric Heisserer, Oscar-nominated screenwriter of Arrival
