Mary Doria Russell discusses and signs Epitaph: A Novel of the O.K. Corral
America in 1881 was full of vicious politics, smuggling and gang warfare along the Mexican border and a president that was scorned by half the population. All those forces came to a head on the afternoon of October 26, when Doc Holiday and the three Earp brothers faced off against the Clantons and McLaurys in Tombstone, Arizona. It should have been a simple arrest but thirty seconds and thirty bullets later, three officers were wounded and three citizens lay dead in the dirt. Wyatt Earp was the only man left standing. The lies began before the smoke even cleared but the gunfight at the O.K. Corral would soon become central to American beliefs. Epitaph gives voice to the real men and women whose lives were changed forever by the fatal thirty seconds at in Tombstone. At the heart of it all is the woman behind the myth, Josephine Sarah Marcus, who loved Wyatt Earp. She carefully chipped away at the truth until she had crafted the legend that would become the Epitaph she believed her husband deserved.

For each purchased copy of the newest title, customers may bring up to three copies from home to be signed. This policy applies to all Vroman's Bookstore events unless otherwise noted.
