A double shot of praise for Joe R. Lansdale's Driving to Geronimo's Grave

Driving to Geronimos Grave by Joe R Lansdale


Joe R. Lansdale's newest collection, Driving to Geronimo's Grave and Other Stories, has just received a couple of strong trade reviews, which makes it likely the book will be sold out on publication, or shortly thereafter. Interestingly enough, each review singled out a different story as the strongest in the book...

From Publishers Weekly:

“Lansdale (Hap and Leonard) ranges far afield in this short but sharp collection of six stories in a variety of genres… And saving the best for last, Lansdale adds to his history of black cowboy legend Nat Love, sending the marshal after four escaped murderers who also incur the wrath of one big, bad momma grizzly. Lansdale provides consistent entertainment for readers of all genres, not only in his fiction but also in the chatty intro and in afterwords of each yarn.”

From Kirkus Reviews:

“[The title story is] the best one here, in which the narrator's tough kid sister has a dangerous tongue and an even more dangerous aim. She's like Scout from To Kill a Mockingbird recast as hard, funny, and wised-up. The story itself is something like Flannery O'Connor's ‘A Good Man Is Hard to Find’ reimagined as a piece of wish fulfillment. You'd have a hard time thinking of a story that seems a less likely candidate for a feel-good reworking, which is part of this new story's appeal.”
