I've long been a fan of every one of James Lee Burke and Will Patton collaboration but this one is better. Woodrell's trilogy has just become one of my favorite audio books. Pinchot's interpretation was on target with the vocal inflections that I've encountered in the bayou country. Wonderful, colorful, literary slice of the downside of bayou life. I do hope there is more to come from Woodrell & Pinchot.

This was an engaging listen. Any fan of James Lee Burke would probably enjoy it. Probably better than Burke: no clumsy love scenes or irritating politics / social commentary.
Bronson Pinchot over-does his voicings, though, and most of his women characters sound about the same: one combination or another of drunk, insane, or brain-damaged. He's a talented narrator, but someone should have suggested he dial it down a little here and there.
Overall, well worth the time and the credit.
