Entrepreneur and author Clayton Trier has officially released his first published book, The Outskirts of Redemption. The novel tells the story of Buddy Torrence, a 21-year-old recent college graduate who recalls the events surrounding his classmate and best friend’s early passing under unusual and mysterious circumstances when he was only 12 years old.
Set in southeast Texas during the Sixties and Seventies, the book captures the struggle of young adults facing mental health issues in silence and the tragic impact that early passings can have on those left behind. Buddy is haunted by guilt and is finally ready to reveal the truth and seek forgiveness.
The Outskirts of Redemption is a coming-of-age story that exposes mental health stereotypes, especially geared towards young men and the expectations of being a “real man” in the Sixties and Seventies.
“A story that touches us profoundly, driven by a tragedy that need not have happened, and the effects of which changes lives forever.” – Molly & Gary Whitney, authors of Thistle Downe
The book is now available wherever books are sold, following its release on March 14th.

About Outskirts Of Redemption:
For Larry (“Buddy”) Torrence, childhood ended in 1965 when he was twelve, when his best friend, Daniel, killed himself. They were seventh-grade classmates at a newly integrated school in redneck southeast Texas. Buddy’s been a brooding loner since then, unable to stop blaming himself because he alone knows something chilling about Daniel’s death. It’s a stunning secret that he dared not tell anyone back then — not his parents, not the beautiful young psychologist he’s infatuated with, and certainly not the police and school authorities investigating this perplexing case. Nine years have gone by, and twenty-one-year-old Buddy is finally ready to reveal the truth and seek forgiveness.
Come along on this emotional ride into the Sixties and Seventies, a fascinating time filled with remarkable social changes, and see what secrets lie at The Outskirts of Redemption.
