"Over the Line is a spare and magnificent novel, humorous and heartbreaking to the end. Drawing on his native Central New York with an eye as keen as William Kennedy’s or Richard Russo’s, David Lloyd gives us a timely character in the person of Justin Lyle, who is being raised in the economic and moral crucible of small town America. Yet, the story is as classic as it is contemporary, for what emerges is a boy’s coming of age and his realization that morality means nothing outside of the embrace of ambiguity."—Andrew Krivak, author of The Sojourn


David Lloyd discusses Over the Line on Bridge Street

"A brilliant debut novel centering on Justin, whose generation finds itself overwhelmed by the moral chaos of a society on a downward spiral. . . . Over the Line is resonant with meaning and a page turner as well."—Joan Mellen, author of Our Man in Haiti: George de Mohrenschildt and the CIA in the Nightmare Republic
