Book Description

Scott McClanahan is a powerful, exceptional writer, and the overall effect of reading his deceptively simple stories is like getting hit in the head by a champion cage fighter cranked up on meth that was cooked in a trailer without running water in some Kentucky backwoods where people sing murder ballads to their children to put them to sleep. -DONALD RAY POLLOCK, author of The Devil All the Time

He might be one of the great southern storytellers of our time. -VOL. 1 BROOKLYN

When I discovered the stories of Scott McClanahan last year, I was instantly enthralled with his natural storytelling voice and freaky funny tales. Theres no pretense to Scotts work. Its like youre just dropped right into the middle of these fantastic and true stories. Its like a sweet blend of my favorite southern writers, Larry Brown and Harry Crews. Reading McClanahan is like listening to a good friend telling you his best real-life stories on your back porch on a humid night. And you both got a nice whiskey buzz going. -KEVIN SAMPSELL, author of A Common Pornography

McClanahans prose is unfettered and kinetic and his stories seem like a hyper-modern iteration of local color fiction. His delivery is guileless and his morality ambivalent and you get the sense, while reading him, that he is sitting next to you on a barstool, eating peanuts and drinking a beer, and intermittently getting up to pick a song on the jukebox. -THE RUMPUS

Reads like Bukowski with more surprises. -IMPOSE MAGAZINE

    I just bought this cuz the cover cracked me up (fascist classics, I love that) but then it was good. funny and sad and kind of low-key profound. I'm gonna find some more of this weird shit.
