Lansdale's iconic-and occasionally scandalous-crime-fighting duo rides again in this incredible yarn. Hap and Leonard find that the road to Hootie Hoot, Okla., is paved with extraordinary circumstances, a prostitute in peril, and a gang of bikers out for a wild ride. Phil Gigante has a blast delivering the silly one-liners and zingers. His campy and deliberately one-dimensional characterizations are the perfect fit for the book's purple prose and off-color scenarios. It's an unforgettable performance that's downright shameless and tremendous fun. A Vintage paperback. (Nov.) Copyright 2010 Reed Business Information.
"[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
