The 131st episode of the Reading & Writing podcast features an interview with Joe Lansdale. Award-winning author of numerous short stories and novels in a wide variety of genres, Lansdale’s latest novel THE THICKET is in bookstores today. I interviewed Lansdale previously in episode 8 of the Reading & Writing podcast.
“The Bard of East Texas is back. . . . He has been writing brilliantly about East Texas for three decades, but never has the region appeared stranger or more violent than it does here. . . . Memorable characters, a vivid sense of place, and an impressive body count make The Thicket another Lansdale treasure.” Booklist
“Lansdale offers up a coming-of-age Western adventure as captivating as the best of Larry McMurtry and written in a style reminiscent of Mark Twain. With intriguing, sometimes bumbling characters and storytelling laced with bravado, good humor, action, and heart…this title cannot help but captivate readers.” Library Journal starred review
