Overview

Kenrick Brimley, the state prison's official gigolo, hangs over a lava pit on trial for his life in a strange land. He will reveal the course of his life one misguided step at a time for his captors. From his romance with serial arsonist Leena Manasseh to his lurid angst-affair with a lesbian music diva, from his ascendence as unlikely pop icon to otherworldly encounters, the one constant truth is that he's got no clue what he's doing. As unrelenting as it is original, Last Burn in Hell is John Edward Lawson at his most scorching intensity, serving up sexy satire and postmodern pulp with his trademark day-glow prose. The Director's Cut includes: deleted scenes, alternate ending, re-mastering for more enjoyable viewing, and more!

Editorial Reviews

Icons of Fright - Scott LeFebvre
Last Burn in Hell is an exceptional creature as far as books go...Lawson is an exception to the business of comparison in that his voice is a worthwhile addition to the chorus of authors following the trend most prominently presented in Palahniuk's body of work. An earnest, but wry honesty in writing, exploring the paradoxes of our contemporary American society.
Somebody Dies - Craig Clarke
John Edward Lawson is very much a man of ideas (one need only read his poetry to understand that), and Last Burn in Hell: Director's Cut shows that not only is he constantly coming up with new ones, but he is also unlikely to run out of them anytime soon...it would very likely appeal to fans of The World According to Garp, and it deserves that large and diverse audience.
Verbicide - David Tamarin
A nice literary feat, disturbing, amusing and always entertaining...I already miss Kenrick and the bizarre crowd he runs with, as well as Lawson's social satire and criticism and his quick wit and clever puns, his erotic descriptions and his hip hop lunacy. A wonderful first novel. Let's hope the rest of the series is as well done and takes us more into Kenrick's bizarre world, and gives us more of Lawson's hilarious, deadly accurate social and cultural commentary.
The Swallow's Tail - Forrest Armstrong
In Last Burn in Hell, John Edward Lawson takes us on an insane trip where predicting what happens next is virtually impossible. This book draws the reader in right from the beginning and continues to be laugh-out-loud funny and nightmarishly scary to the very end… It ranks right up there with other bizarro cult classics like Satan Burger.
Skullring.org - David Montoya
This Last Burn in Hell burns with the humor and intensity of hell. From hereon forth, I will not be able to bring up Vonnegut without speaking of Lawson. John Edward Lawson could contest the throne that Chuck Palahniuk sits upon with the masses of college students looking for something different, a voice of the counter-culture.
