Transgression and Ruin: A Conversation with Jake Hinkson
June 18, 2012 Leave a comment
Jake “Hardboiled Hillbilly” Hinkson returns to the show to talk about his debut novel Hell on Church Street, in which, as Steve Shadow Schwartz writes, Hinkson “stunningly limns the dichotomy between true faith and religous hucksterism while tossing in sociopathic behavior so that his book becomes a cautionary tale rife with sly humor, lust, and self-delusion.” We’ve been heaping praise on Jake’s first novel in our own private conversations, and now on the podcast, but we’re not alone. Read other reviews here, here, and elsewhere on the interwebs.
Marcus Villano delivers us an Aging Cheerleader in response, partly, to our previous episode with Joe Bussard.
We send you home with a Pookahontas original, “The Final Torch Song.”
