A marvelous mixture of texas gothic and a satire of regional tropes, religion and filled with a generous helping of sexual repression and lust and sex among other things.
Hap and Leonard's world is very different from my own. Landsdale writes so damn well that you get swept into this world and nothing else exists. I read this book in a day and half(I'm a bit behind in listing my reading on goodreads). It use of race is well-balanced. You never feel that it was used in an exploitative manner- it simply feels real.
Fantastic dark tinged madness limned with a dose of sadness.
