Whoo-wee! That's a good'in. A barn-burner, page-turner, elegant and dangerous. A book about dope farmin', country girls, gun play, deep Ozark family feudin', whiskey drinkin', goomers and goobers and writing itself? Thank God for Daniel Woodrell. My new favorite living writer. Winter's Bone was even better than this, but I will make my way through every other one of his six other books and I am looking to see Ride With The Devil, a film adaptation of his second novel.
He's just a fine, fine writer with language that gets right in your blood and your loins like whiskey, cigarettes. and short skirts swayin' by a honky tonk jukebox and makes you feel like you done somethin' stupid you're bound for trouble on - without sufferin' the consequences.
