Publisher's Description

Literary Americana fiction filled with humor and heart

When his wife, Angel, is killed in a head-on collision, Gomez Gomez feels he can’t go on--so he doesn’t. He spends his days in the bushes next to the crash site drinking Thunderbird wine, and his nights cradling a coffee can full of Angel’s ashes. Slow, sure suicide, with no one for company but the snakes, Elvis’s ghost, and a strange kid named Bones.

Across town, Father Jake Morales plays it safe, haunted by memories of the woman he left behind, hiding his guilt, loss, and love behind a thick wall of cassock and ritual. Then a shady business deal threatens the town--and his good friend Gomez Gomez--and Father Jake can’t just stand by and watch. But what happens when the rescuer is the one in need of saving?

The Beautiful Ashes of Gomez Gomez is quirky, heartfelt, and deeply human. Lives and hopes collide in the town of Paradise, stretching across decades and continents in this epic story of forgiveness, redemption, and love.

Editorial Reviews

The Beautiful Ashes of Gomez Gomez solidifies Buck Storm’s place among the unique literary voices of our day. Infused with humor, imagination, and poetic beauty, Buck’s writing is an absolute delight. I’ve read all his books, and his characters have taken up permanent residence in my memory. They come back to me at unexpected moments and invariably leave me smiling. Anyone who travels into the wild, wacky, wonderful world of Gomez Gomez is in for an unforgettable adventure.” -- Ann Tatlock, novelist, blogger, and children's book author

“Yet another treasure from a writer whose gifts only get richer and more compelling with each new story he brings to life. Buck paints such masterful word pictures that his characters breathe and their world becomes yours!” -- Randy Stonehill, singer-songwriter

“I’ve never read a phrase from Buck Storm that wasn’t time well spent—and worth reading again. A topflight storyteller, Storm pits his protagonist—an eccentric, homeless widower—against a powerful and wealthy small-town businessman. The engaging story has readers quickly joining the cast of funky supporting characters on the streets of Paradise, Arizona, grooving on creative plot twists and wondering if this hero-and-villain drama can ever be resolved." -- Randall Murphree, editor of the AFA Journal

"From a small Southwest town to the island of Corfu, Storm’s quirky characters take us to a place where love, compassion, and redemption may seem out of reach but are always within our grasp. From a cameo from Elvis to a story within a story, The Beautiful Ashes of Gomez Gomez becomes more than a metaphor. Is Paradise, Arizona, real? We can only hope.” -- Bill Higgs, author of Eden Hill

“Whether it’s a dustup in Arizona or a splash in the Mediterranean, redemption and romance are on the rise. Prepare to be lifted up on angel’s wings with this latest novel from Buck Storm.” -- Robert Case, pastor of Calvary Chapel Eastside, Bellevue, Washington

"Populated with quirky, memorable characters, Buck Storm’s novel spins a laugh-out-loud tale perfect for a lazy day." -- The Banner
