The strongest, truest, and most pitch-perfect narration since Huck Finn's. Marvelous and terrifying, EDGE OF DARK WATER is the result of real genius at work. A masterpiece.
EDGE OF DARK WATER describes a trip downriver that is one-half Huck Finn, one-half Deliverance, and entirely Joe Lansdale.
Dark and comic, bleak and terrifying, romantic and endearing...This, I kid you not, is the Great American Novel of the year.
Alternately scary, funny as hell, disturbing, but always (and most importantly) memorable.
Joe Lansdale has long been one of our finest and most difficult to classify writers... In EDGE OF DARK WATER he offers a beautifully spun tale of life in the sticks, friendship and mortality, and tells it with the wit, humor and pure-deep power we've come to expect of him.
