"At once irreverent and prophetic, Inside the Outside is a real achievement. The story is full of twists and turns, and the writing is sharp and vivid from beginning to end. In this dark, bold, strange, but always intriguing novel, Martin Lastrapes proves that he is a talented young writer of considerable promise." —James Brown, author of The Los Angeles Diaries and This River
"In this debut novel, Lastrapes slips deftly from disturbingly dark to vibrantly tender and every hue and shadow in between, sending the reader on a journey through a place that is as beautiful and alluring as it is horrific. Deliciously creepy..."—S. Kay Murphy, author of Tainted Legacy: The Story of Alleged Serial Killer Bertha Gifford
