Holy crap. This one should be kept away from anyone under the age of oh, say, 50. Dark, evil, raunchy, gory, obscene, and yet sometimes funny story set in 1911 in Alabama. Guy named Smonk is to go on trial in a very strange small town, which kicks off a killing, whoring, weirdly fast moving plot that makes the worst R rated movie or HBO series look like a child's story. Of course, I had to finish it to see if anyone lived. LOL

Lauren Wow, I have this on my "To Read" list because I loved Crooked Letter so much. Now I'm wondering...not so much into gore...
