Stephen "gritty, raw, uncompromising prose that snaps and bites at your soft spots."

That is gold. Well put. I need to read this.

Crowinator Excellent review and recommendation! I've had an ARC of this book for forever and I keep meaning to read it. I'll move it up on my list of adult books to read. I've never heard of redneck noir before but it's very descriptive term.


Erin ☕ *Proud Book Hoarder* Great review and recommendation!

Thanks Crowinator! I will say approach this one with caution -- it is very dark and demented in places. I got "redneck noir" from Kemper, and I think that's just perfect :)

Jason is this more a novel? or linked stories?

Oh, it's definitely a novel Jason. With very different characters who each have their own stories, but it all comes together beautifully as a cohesive whole.

Pollock does have an outstanding short story collection however called Knockemstiff. Loved it!

Jason fantastic. I am not really in the mood for short stories, and this one seems a bit violent coming out of Sharp Objects, so ill get into it after the book im reading now. People seem to enjoy this one more than his previous work.

Mariah This is everything that I wanted to say about the book without knowing how to say it. Great review.

Robert Spencer Great review. You're so right about how he manages to make these characters human when so much about their actions is monstrous. I still can't get this book out of my head
