Lansdale On Top Form,
This review is from: Lost Echoes (Vintage Crime/Black Lizard) (Paperback)
I have been a fan of Joe R Lansdale for some time now and have yet to be diappointed by any of his work. Whether it is the Hap and Leonard series, his writing for comic books, or standalone novels such as this, his writing is always vibrant and full of dark wonder.
Great characters that I really identified with, particularly the hero of the story and his unfortunate experiences with manipulative women, growing apart from childhood friends and experiences with alcohol. All young men go through this, though thankfully not all see such ghastly visions...
Behind the wisecracking dialogue lies real tension and touching tenderness between the young man and his drunken, bereaved mentor. As usual, Lansdale leaves you wanting more.
