A twisted western taking place during the Gold Rush, in which a mountain man is cursed to linger between worlds, uncertain if he's alive or dead, floating through dream-like encounters as he sets out towards California, trying to make sense of what is happening to him.

Wurlitzer's style of prose grabs you right from the start and only tightens its grip as the pages wear on. The Drop Edge of Yonder is a hangover of a novel, intentionally disorienting the reader with unrelenting amounts of liquor, sex, and violence. It's an experience that leaves the reader as muddle-minded as its characters - once its over, we are unsure of where we had just been, where we currently are, and where the hell we should move on to next.
