A blistering and fearless slice of gut-wrenching hill-billy noir from a superb new talent
Frank Bill lives and writes in Southern Indiana. CRIMES IN SOUTHERN INDIANA is his first book.
"Brutal and intoxicating." * Guardian * "Take American gothic + Tarantino + 1 cup of human blood. Liquidise in blender. Result: The great stories of Frank Bill" -- Alan Warner "An astonishingly powerful debut book...It's a brutal rabbit punch of a book - a shotgun blast in the chest of literature and a crystal meth hit to the reader...Remarkable." -- Doug Johnstone * Big Issue * "Amazing collection...It's all overshadowed by a Southern Indiana landscape that proves eerily ideal for guns, hunting, secret meth labs and the casual infliction of terrible pain. 270 pages of gripping and harrowing shitloads of it." * Dazed and Confused * "There's a whiskey-gargling swagger to [Frank Bill's] Cormac McCarthy-style prose, and each noir tale is savagely addictive." * Shortlist *
