This is the first of McClanahan's work that I have read, and I did so because of the low price (free to borrow from Prime members and very cheap to buy for Kindle) of this collection and his upcoming appearance at Literary Death Match in Washington, DC. I will definitely be back for more. Fiction authors who produce literary work that is so relatable and so rooted in the less explored corners of society (the working class, decidedly not urbane) are hard to come by. I would compare McClanahan to Steve Almond, but there are sadly few well known authors to compare him with. McClanahan's alter ego could have embraced and reveled in the rough edges of society like Bukowski, but his character's softer edges give us a protagonist that is original and easier to relate to and root for, even when he's stealing a dirt bike. The only drawback is how quickly this collection reads, leaving you wanting more confessions, more weird tales of Rainelle, West Virginia and Razy's brood.
I look forward to seeing McClanahan's self deprecating wit and penchant for truth and confession on display in person and reading his other collections in the very near future.
