About the Author
Praise For The Death of Sweet Mister…
"[Woodrell] has achieved near mastery of style: language, plot, characterization and theme mesh with a seamless power."
-Michael Anderson, New York Times Book Review
"A fiery, poetic, hair-raising novel."
-Bret Israel, Los Angeles Times
"The plot, tawdry in the abstract, is transformed by Woodrell's gallows humour and his rendering of Shug's voice, part Huck Finn, part Holden Caulfield."
-Bharat Tandon, Times Literary Supplement (U.K.)
"A dark, disturbing beauty of a story . . . Woodrell throws down sentences that will leave you amazed."
-Charles Frazier, author of Cold Mountain
