The Hellmouths of Bewdley
By

Rating
In The Hellmouths of Bewdley there are always some murdered men and some gay men. A baby man, a sexy man, and a drunk man. An insane doctor. A wonderful doctor. Twenty guys named Jesus. Men who wonder about women and women who don't care. A lot of dogs: some of them supernatural. More drunk and dead men. A number of cranes, no herons. A real ninja turtle. A jail, a detox, a fire, and a suicide or two. An agoraphobic with crabs, a bunny messiah, women in ages, some children, and drugs and fried chicken. A very small town. Like sixteen medieval B-movies, The Hellmouths of Bewdley is a series of stories hiding in a novel about a small town in Ontario's cottage country. Tony Burgess's first book is a halfway house for literary delinquents; electro-shock therapy for a storyteller who is grateful for the looters' paradise of post-modern distraction. Burgess believes there is a shape that fact and fiction both seek, that narratives occur in defiance of the things they harbour. In The Hellmouths of Bewdley nightmares are our babysitters: they tell bedtime stories to normal, happy children while their parents destroy their lives or pass out, dead to the world, in front of the TV.

Reviews

"Probably the most exciting debut of the year, and certainly the most fun, was Tony Burgess' "The Hellmouths of Bewdley"." --"Toronto Star" "The language is clear, evocative . . . There's more than a little of Beckett in Burgess's writing." --"Toronto Globe and Mail"
