    I had first caught this author in the Texas Observer's Larry McM

    I had first caught this author in the Texas Observer's Larry McMurtry judged short story contest. The First Henley was gripping, touching and humorous. I wanted more of him so I picked up The Short Bus and found it the same. The Short Bus wasn't everyone's cup of tea. This guy isn't likely to fan any flames for the politically correct or gung hoe grunts that unquestionly swallow the company line. His sympathetic characters are severely flawed like the waco that just killed America's most leathal sniper or like the sniper himself who realizes that he's a screwed up as the next guy. Ran across Paula Bomer's critique of The Short Bus and the description of this guy's work that she claims is descriped best by Flanery O'Connor's description of "the grotesque in literature". Bomer nailed it. He had nailed it and not every writer can do that....gracefully ugly....grotesquely exquisite. Grabbed his next book Vampire Conditions thinking it was some cockeyed vampire crap and it to my surprise there were other gems AND The First Henly to boot. Like The Short Bus I give it a solid 4.
