About the Author

Tony Burgess’s first novel, The Hellmouths of Bewdley received universal critical praise and hailed the arrival of Canada’s “splatter punk Stephen King.” He was shortlisted for the Trillium Award for his novel, Idaho Winter. He is also the author of the infamous zombie epic, Pontypool Changes Everything, which was named Best Book of 1998 by Now Magazine (made into the film Pontypool). His story collection, Fiction for Lovers won the Relit Prize for best Canadian short fiction. His previous novel with CZP, People Live Still in Cashtown Corners is currently being made into a film by Foresight Features and Bruce McDonald.

I read this immediately after The Seven Days of Peter Crumb. Both books have a similar "plot" (yes, that is using the word "plot" VERY loosely), but Cashtown is much more "sensible"; the main character is more believable and his actions, while extreme, *could* have happened the way they are described (not so with Crumb).The book starts off with the attitude that murder is just another activity in the day... pump gas, buy groceries, murder someone, watch TV... ho-hum...The tone does change around the midway point - and becomes more chaotic, gory and extreme. It almost has a feel of a true crime story (and the pictures in the middle of the book encourage this conclusion)... which I think makes the story especially disturbing.I guess it could be thought of as a glimpse inside the head of a psychopath, complete with his own reasonings as to why he's psycho. While it is kind of similar to American Psycho, this one is more chaotic, and the crimes more... err.. aggressive and extreme.
