Re-edition of Me's debut vel, in which he paints a near-fantastical world of trailer park floozies, broken-down '76 Impalas, lost glass eyes and the daily experiences of two boys trying to make sense of their random, sharp lives. Dough and Pill are two brothers living in a trailer park, surrounded by the strange and displaced, who must navigate through a world of constant pain and confusion. The power is in the writing. Mr Me is a superb craftsman.' - Hubert Selby, Jr'
