Product Details


“[Joe Lansdale] is one of the greatest yarn spinners of his generation: fearless, earthy, original, manic and dreadfully funny.”—Dallas Morning News

“A folklorist’s eye for telling detail and front porch raconteur’s sense of pace.” —The New York Times Book Review

“Hilarious. . . .  Addictively scarfable. . . . Two thumbs-up, and pardon the barbecue smears.”—Texas Monthly ”A master at taking a simple everyday event and turning reality upside down.”–Mystery Scene ”Hilarious. . . . Lansdale is a terrifically gifted storyteller with a sharp country boy wit.”–The Washington Post Book World ”Lansdale’s prose, both laconic and sarcastic, is so thick with slang and regional accent that it’s as tasty as a well-cured piece of beef jerky. Readers will want to savor each bite.”—Milwaukee Journal Sentinel ”Lansdale has an unsettling sensibility. Be thankful he crafts such wild tall tales.”–Chicago Sun-Times ”A storyteller in the great American tradition of Ambrose Bierce and Mark Twain.”–The Boston Globe ”Funny, compulsive . . . enjoyably raffish.”—Esquire
