THE BOAR byJoe R. Lansdale. Illustrated by Alex McVey. Portland, OR/an Franscisco CA; Night Shade Books; 2005.
The first trade edition of this hard-to-find short novel.
It's the Great Depression in East Texas, and a fifteen year-old boy has to face down a wild boar that threatens his family. But if his Dad, a tough carnie wrestler, can't stop the beast, what hope does a kid who wants to be a writer have? Fans of Lansdale's Edgar Award-winning The Bottoms will love the reading more about the characters they met briefly in the author's famous "country noir."
