Joe R. Lansdale: Fender Lizards (USA 2015)
From the Publisher:
Dot waitresses on roller skates at the Dairy Bob, doesn't care for smoking at least partly on account of her dad having never returned from a cigarette run, and carries on the family tradition of philosophizing. Life hasn't done her any favors in her seventeen years so far. But if there was ever a heroine built for turning things upside down and seeing what shakes out, it's Dot. Determined to find out who she is and why she's the way she is, an opportunity presents itself when her heretofore-unknown uncle suddenly moves his camper into the front yard.
As in his classic novels The Bottoms and The Magic Wagon, multiple-award-winning Lansdale instills place with character and character with place. Here is an overlooked world and a cast of real folks that prove unforgettable, all rendered in one of American fiction's most authentic voices.
The limited edition of Fender Lizards will include not only the novel proper, it will also be graced by two full-color interior illustrations by Jon Foster, as well as three original Hap Collins short stories, including "Tire Fire", the tale in which Hap and Leonard first meet.
