The creepy characters in Frank Bill's vivid and unnerving stories are about as close as I want to get to Indiana's crack heads and white trash. Bill has a huge, provocative talent; it's like you're sitting in the bar with these losers, which is a real service to mankind. Now you don't have to actually go there yourself! I'm a fan of the TV series Justified, and the bad guys on that show look like pretty little angels compared to Bill's creations. A visceral, riveting read. I felt like I had a layer of grease on me when I was done.
