Terrifyingly Graphic - In a Good Way

Terrifyingly graphic and well-written. The story and characters are consuming and incredibly realistically-drawn. I devoured this book. I enjoyed "Paris Trout" which was the first Pete Dexter book I'd ever read, but I was consumed by "The Paperboy."

Thanks, Pete! Also, ice cream grossed me out for a while afterward.
