bookshelves: pulp-fiction
Recommended for: incest fans, toothless survivalists
Read in June, 1998

Erskine Caldwell-styled hillbilly mung about a grizzled old poppa fallin' down hard for his lil' Ozark daughter Kady, all budding inta womanhood and fallin' for his rival's son.
They fight like grizzly bar's for Kady's tender touch, leadin' to murder in the coal mine! She has a baby and the only way you can tell who's the paw is a birthmark shaped like a butterfly. Dopey hillbilly books are always a hoot to read.

Rebecca You captured the sleaze. I wanted to shower in acid after reading this oily book.

Andy It's a sort of Jerry Springer-type melodrama, Forties style.
