Read in September, 2009

Sure, it's a violent, distasteful, slangy, excessively and unrealistically depraved, cheap-shot-taking (no need to bring the Holocaust into things, man) mess...but Jim Thompson wrote it, so it's my kind of violent, distasteful, slangy, excessively and unrealistically depraved, cheap-shot-taking (no need to bring the Holocaust into things, man) mess. I go by the labels on the stars: three stars, "I liked it". That's about right. Seems like incest-as-characterization is something you'd come down a little harder on...but no.
