It's as if Raymond Carver were still alive and living in the Deep South. Or, imagine a world created by Jim Harrison and Cormac McCarthy and plunk it down in the woods of southern Alabama, where emotions run as raw as moonshine. Tom Franklin's eloquent deceptively simple prose evokes a world of hunting and fishing, shotgun shacks and trailer parks, poachers, and lawmen, factory workers, poor white trash, and bucket-o-'blood boozers. His stories are laced with naked violence, hot food, and the ever bitter sweat and tears of human relationships.… (mer)

The stories in this book are incredibly well-written. The descriptions of rural southern living were heartbreaking and a little familiar, although uglier than anything I ever experienced myself. I found the women characters to be little more than props to all the men in these stories. The title story, poachers, read like a season of Fargo and would make a terrific thriller plot. ( )

Someone told me the other day that William Gay had passed away. That momentary deflation I associate with the death of familiar artists left me pondering legacy and contemporaries. It would prove approapirate to assemble my own introspection. I always felt that Gay was improvising; he was an autodidact channeling a lifetime of fractured stories. Tom Franklin took the pitch as if he owned it. The stories here establish his talent as one for the ages. ( )

Thank you, Rick, for recommending this book and subsequently letting me "not return it."

This is a great book of Southern short stories ... and it helps if you're from the South and know what Franklin's talking about. ( )

This is my 2nd Tom Franklin book and I am a believer. This collection of short stories was his first book. This is a dark book about life in Southwest Alabama populated by people who can sometimes be characterized by the term "white trash". Franklin delves into their lives and portrays a world that I know exists but does not touch mine on any level. He does a great job of making you feel the underbelly of life in the South or at least this part of the south. These stories are not happy and there is lots of violence but they will keep your interest. A very good first book and having read "Hell at the Breach" he certainly has developed into an excellent novelist. Someone to latch onto. ( )
