Hog, a Dwarf, and Redemption –

The Thicket - Joe R. Lansdale

Joe R. Lansdale’s The Thicket grabbed me with the first sentence and wouldn’t turn loose.


As a cross-genre “mystery writer” I’m not big on fiction classifications. The Thicket, like most great books defies pigeonholing. Some would say “crime novel,” some “western,” others “thriller,” others still, “adventure.”


Regardless, The Thicket is nothing short of mastery. Character-driven story-telling at its finest, running a reader through the gauntlet of gut wrenching emotions with ease—poignant, gritty, tongue-and-cheek, and often horrific. Perfectly seasoned with Texas cornpone, this coming-of-age western tale is a delight.
