With this critically acclaimed debut collection, Frank Bill announces himself as an author of fiercely defined vision. In these vivid tales, Bill's southern Indiana proves a literary destination of immense nuance, even as his mostly working-class characters cry out in voices that cannot be denied. "Blasts off like a frigging rocket ship and hits as hard as an ax handle to the side of the head after you've eaten a live rattlesnake for breakfast."-Donald Ray Pollock, best-selling author

"The Indiana Tourism Bureau may be a bit upset with Frank Bill's novel, which makes the state sound like a scary place populated by incestuous, murderous, meth-addicted monsters with bad teeth and no manners. Tom Stechschulte performs this collection of intertwined short stories. Characters like "Knee-High," "Moon," and "Pinebox Willie" make each story as colorful as their names. Stechschulte is perfect--he even sounds dirty as he slips in and out of the personas of characters living on the wrong side of the law. You'll want to take a shower after his lurid descriptions of rape and murder. M.S. (c) AudioFile 2012, Portland, Maine"
