it was amazing
bookshelves: pulp-fiction
Recommended for: Barney Fifes
Read in June, 1998

Nobody wrote crazy like Jim Thompson, and this is one of his best. A big oaf with shit for brains who happens to be the town sheriff gets walked on by every creep and low-life in town. He settles the score by taking advantage of everyone under-estimating him as the Village Idiot even though he's got a psychopathic streak a mile wide. Screw that terrible French film, read the book instead.
