The Bayou Trilogy: Under the Bright Lights, Muscle for the Wing, and The Ones You Do by Daniel Woodrell. I saw the author on Anthony Bourdain's show in a swamp. Interesting -- no touchy feel here! He's also the author of Winter's Bone.
I share this from one of my favorite books, "The Shack" Pain has a way of clipping our wings and keeping us from being able to fly, and if left unresolved you can almost forget that you were ever created to fly in the first place.
i finally finished acowar and man was that a good book. it just made me feel so many good things and the plot twists and the characters and aaaaah its so good. now im just waiting for the next throne of glass book.
