Richard LipezLansdale is both as humane and as tasteless as anybody writing crime fiction today. Reading him is like riding the best tilt-a-whirl you've ever been on while still keeping your lunch down…Lansdale is a pleasingly unhinged down-home-style raconteur. He can write a line like this: "I kicked him pretty hard in the throat, and he rolled over holding his throat and making a noise like someone trying to swallow a couple of Ping-Pong balls." He can also endow a character named Jazzy, an abused and neglected 10-year-old girl, with heartbreaking tenderness. Lansdale is a fascinating original.
