Recommended for: Fans of Faulkner and other literary Gothic authors

Sort of like Pulp Fiction set in rural Northern California. The plot revolves around a gang of self-destructive and dangerous burnouts. While this easily could have slid into some pretty boring territory, each character is sympathetic and interesting. Johnson does a great job describing the supernatural qualities of day-to-day life without sounding trite, whimsical, or dorky.
