Drew Magary presents The Hike, a wild, thrilling fantasy saga that chronicles one man’s epic life-or-death quest to return to his family after getting lost on a wooded path that leads him into an alternate, dreamlike world full of man-eating giants, garish demons, and colossal insects. As a columnist for Deadspin and correspondent for GQ, Magary is known for his brash commentary on everything from professional football to politics. Though The Hike is penned in his trademark, hilarious, no-holds-barred prose, the story is inspired by classic fairy tales like The Odyssey, as well as children's books like The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe. The result is utterly imaginative, deeply felt novel—like a Salvador Dali painting on amphetamines.

 

Drew Magary is a correspondent for GQ and a columnist for Deadspin. He is the author of the memoir Someone Could Get Hurt and the novel The Postmortal. His writing has appeared in Maxim, New York, NPR, NBC, The Atlantic, Bon Appétit, The Huffington Post, the Awl, Gawker, Penthouse,Playboy, Yahoo!, ESPN, Rolling Stone, Comedy Central, and more.
