Crimes in Southern Indiana

A ferocious debut that puts Frank Bill's southern Indiana on the literary map next to Cormac McCarthy's eastern Tennessee and Daniel Woodrell's Missouri OzarksC rimes in Southern Indiana is the most blistering vivid flat out fearless debut to plow into American literature in recent years Frank Bill delivers what is both a wake up call and a gut punch Welcome to heartland America circa right about now when the union jobs and family farms that kept the white on the picket fences have given way to meth labs backwoods gunrunners and bare knuckle brawlingBill's peop. Is there anybody left alive in Indiana by the end of this bookFrank Bill delivers a brutal series of short stories about murder rape blood feuds pot dealing meth dealing dog fighting revenge incest and the occasional shell shocked veteran cutting off a couple of ears You know just another Tuesday in the American heartlandWhat I particularly liked about this is that Bill uses the stories about various people over a couple of generations to give you a complete picture of an area By the time you get to the end you feel like you re one of the locals tapped into the gossip network so that you know the dirty laundry of everyone around you Probably best to keep your mouth shut though unless you want to wind up minus your head thanks to a twelve gauge blast These people ain t playing aroundThis is hard boiled redneck noir with crimes that would send those sissy gangsters in New York running home to their mothers Bill has the ruthless and brutal efficiency of a poacher gutting a deerMy only complaint is that almost every story featured scenes of extremely graphic violence Bill does this stuff well and puts it to good use but after a while it started to feel like Frank Miller had moved Sin City to a farm setting It probably wouldn t have seemed so repetitive if I would have taken some breaks between stories but I would have liked a couple of uieter ones that didn t involve blood splatter or shattered bones

Though this is definitely a smart often uite funny and occasionally feelsy makey collection of short stories about one of my favorite subjects in literature them there classy cousin fucking meth addicted wife beating date raping PBR slugging racist rednecks I think it s possible that I ve actually exceeded my monthly uota for hick lit and this book s place in my memory will be paying the price for it And honestly I don t even feel all that guilty about it considering these stories were actually kinda redundant plot wise from blood soaked rape revenge tales to messy drug dealings to studies seriously than one of them in a small short story collection that is not even primarily about PTSD of PTSD all built atop the standard foundation of literally everyone in Bumfuck is a sadistic psychopath And don t get me wrong I love reading that shit designed as it is for popcorn entertainment and vicarious id cleansing like when the sex trafficked young girl chases the dudes who wronged her around with a chainsaw and hacks off their body parts and bites out their throats and whatnot because it s a cathartic way to manage the woes of the world added to which I m a terrible person who thinks elaborate violence is hilarious as long as it s fake Hello run on sentence Honestly I think I just needed some time away from the genre or maybe should have gone after these stories at a reasonable rate of about one per week or even one per day or at the very least just base level set the rule that I wouldn t blow through every single one of them back to back in a single day without a break Because whoa This is good Pollock is better Mostly because he s funnier and convincing and mixes it up or maybe just because I read him first and I m stubborn and unfair One of my favorite parts in thissin though was when ole dude started yelling because he thought his General Practitioner was uestioning his sexuality by diagnosing him as bi polar Totally worth a read just take it real real slow like
