A Maxim Jakubowski selected title. A rare example of a literary western in the now hallowed traditions of Cormac McCarthy and The Sisters Brothers, Winnette's sly adventures are a genuine delight, and at the antipode of the familiar heroics of the movies, Louis L'Amour or Zane Grey. When Brooke and Sugar, two killers on the run stumble across Bird, a naked, mute boy who is unable to explain his presence or past, the road is set for an orgy of violence and over the top incidents of a bloody nature as they come to confront their own instincts and thirst for excess. Both fast-reading and meditative, the encounters each character makes once they are eventually separated in the wilderness of the West, make for a wry, picaresque philosophical tale of blood, ties that bind, and the permanence of evil. Quite unique and fascinating, even if you're not intrinsically a fan of westerns.
