Alternately scary, funny as hell, disturbing, but always (and most importantly) memorable.
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.
Dark and comic, bleak and terrifying, romantic and endearing...This, I kid you not, is the Great American Novel of the year.
EDGE OF DARK WATER describes a trip downriver that is one-half Huck Finn, one-half Deliverance, and entirely Joe Lansdale.
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.
