Meet Hap and Leonard, the unlikely detective duo now on screen in the highly praised series starring James Purefoy, Michael K. Williams and Christina Hendricks. A rip-roaring, high-octane, Texas-sized thriller, featuring two friends, one vixen, a crew of washed-up radicals, loads of money and bloody mayhem. Hap Collins and Leonard Pine are best friends, yet they couldn't be more different. Hap is an East Texas white boy with a weakness for women. Leonard is a gay, black Vietnam vet. Together, they steer up more commotion than a fire storm. But that's just the way they like it. When an ex-flame of Hap's returns promising a huge score, Hap lets Leonard in on the scam, and that's when things get interesting. Chock-full of action and laughs, Savage Season is the masterpiece of dark suspense that introduced Hap and Leonard to the thriller scene. It hasn't been the same since.… (mer)

Lansdale, Joe R. Savage Season. Hap and Leonard No. 1. Vintage Crime/Black Lizard, 1990.
Savage Season is a novel that I would not be surprised to learn was in the back of Quentin Tarantino’s mind when he was writing Pulp Fiction. The conversation between Hap and Leonard has the same noir quality as the dialogue between Jules and Vincent, especially once Jules enters his transitional phase. Our narrator, Hap, is a 40-year-old whose life changed when he went to prison for draft resistance, which put him out of touch with his leftist ideals. His best friend, Leonard, is a gay, black Vietnam vet who has become equally alienated. The 1980s, Leonard says, are the sixties without the tie-dyed shirts. They are forced to reconsider their Vietnam-era values when Hap’s ex-wife, now a hardened revolutionary, shows up with a gang of fellow travelers and criminals to retrieve some drug money to fund her revolution. Sex and violence ensue in satisfying amounts. The novel is elevated above the usual genre tropes by thoughtful character construction. Even minor characters are given clarity and thematic relevance. The series of novels is ongoing, now in its twenty-fourth volume, and its 3-season Sundance TV series is running on Netflix. ( )

DO NOT READ IF...
SPOILER SPOILER SPOILER SPOILER SPOILER

I didn't finish this book. I got most of the way through but when they met a sociopath/psychopath and he headed back to Leonard's farm with them, and the dogs were at the farm...well I didn't want to read any more. I skimmed a little to confirm that my expectation was correct.
DOGS ARE MURDERED
But I wouldn't recommend it anyway, too much gratuitous ugliness. The main characters are clearly people one can root for, and their dilemmas are real. Maybe it is just too male...maybe eventually there will be a woman with a heart for Hap, and a man with a heart for Leonard. But I won't find out. I'm a little worried because I found a bunch of books based on one person's recommendation...I hope I don't refuse to finish them all.

Savage Season is a crime novel written by Joe R. Lansdale and it is the first in his Hap and Leonard series. The books are set in eastern Texas with main characters Hap Collins and Leonard Pine as a couple of good ol’ boys. Although they are complete opposites of each other, Leonard is a Vietnam vet, Hap went to prison rather than go to war; Hap is white, Leonard is black; and Hap is straight while Leonard is gay; these fellows are the best of friends and very loyal to each other.

When Hap’s ex-wife Trudy shows up with a proposition, an easy way to make two hundred thousand dollars, Hap overcomes Leonard’s objections and they embark on a wild and dangerous adventure that, of course, ends badly.

Savage Season is literary mayhem at it’s best. Dark, funny, and violent, this tightly plotted story is full of hard boiled bravado and emotionally damaged characters. This one book has made me a fan of Joe R. Lansdale and I am happy to note that he has written at least eleven more books in the series plus many stand-alone novels as well. ( )

"Savage Season" is the first of Joe R. Lansdale's Hap and Leonard series, although this was the third Hap & Leonard book I read, so I knew, for example, that the two would survive a number of dangerous situations to fight another day.

We first meet Hap when he's at his lowest; working in the boiling Texas sun at a rose plantation. We soon learn he was meant for better things before hie idealistically evaded the draft in the sixties so he could be gaoled as a political statement. Then his old girkfriend enters the picture and Hap and his black, gay, Vietnam veteran friend Leonard are up to their necks in nastiness.

"Savage Season" isn't the best of the Hap and Leonard series but you might as well start here if you plan to read the series. ( )

Black Humor in the Sticks: "Savage Season" by Joe R. Lansdale Published 1990.
 
"I didn't want to be anywhere near Trudy right then. I had a hunch she would have harsh words to say about me and Leonard, and I wasn't up to it. I didn't want her to get me near a bed either. She could really talk in bed, and if she talked long enough and moved certain parts of her body just right, I might agree to have Leonard shot at sunset."
 
I started reading "Savage Season" while reading Arnaldur Indridason’s "Oblivion”. Why? Because I misplaced it at home on a Friday and I didn’t bother to go looking for it (yes, my office is jam packed with books, and sometimes even books get lost in that jungle). Had it been a better book I'm pretty sure I couldn’t’ve been without it during the weekend. So I read around 100 pages of "Savage Season" before finishing "Oblivion". Already then I knew I would like Lansdale better than Indridason, at least when it comes to writing Crime Fiction (I’m not even sure Lansdale writes it).
 
If you're into a good mix of black humour and wonderful one-liners, read on. ( )
