What People are saying about this

Scott Heim
Elegantly constructed and very smart, Execution, Texas: 1987 holds more crackly energy than a box of firecrackers. And Seeger, its nervy, sex-obsessed protagonist, is unforgettable.
David Sedaris
D. Travers Scott's novel is, in turn, both funny and disturbing...captures the mystery and confusion of an American youth where the search for love is equaled only by the search for drugs.
