Carter Nathaniel ,

Child of God reveiw

This book was thoroughly gripping in a disturbing way. Lester Ballard is easily one of the most insane characters I have ever read. My only complaint about the book was the narrative. It was often times quite hard to understand. But when major things happened it was generally very good.

Brilliance

All his works an ode to a literary alchemist’s Magnum Opus. A gorgeous work of human degradation at it’s most perverse.
