Mark Twain meets classic Stephen King - a bold new direction for widely acclaimed Edgar Award-winner Joe R. Lansdale.
May Lynn was once a pretty girl who dreamed of becoming a Hollywood star. Now she's dead, her body dredged up from the Sabine River.
Sue Ellen, May Lynn's strong-willed teenage friend, sets out to dig up May Lynn's body, burn it to ash, and take those ashes to Hollywood to spread around. If May Lynn can't become a star, then at least her ashes will end up in the land of her dreams. Along with her friends, Terry and Jinx, and her alcoholic mother, Sue Ellen steals a raft and heads downriver to carry May Lynn's remains to Hollywood.
Only problem is, Sue Ellen has some stolen money that her enemies will do anything to get back. And what looks like a prime opportunity to escape from a worthless life will instead lead to disastrous consequences. In the end, Sue Ellen will learn a harsh lesson about just how hard growing up can be.

This was an excellent listening experience all around. Great writing, wonderful story, excellent performance. Highly recommended !
Absolutely. His writing just gets better with each book. I've listened to "The Thicket", too, one of my favorites.
First time listening to her. I will definitely look for more with her narration.
