South of the Pumphouse by Les Claypool
Book DescriptionThis is a debut novel from the art-rock pioneer and frontman of Primus. This is a dark, clever tale, reminiscent of "The Old Man and the Sea" and of the raw, tweeked perspective of a Hunter S. Thompson novel. A dark, clever tale of two brothers, a fishing trip, misconceptions, drugs and murder, "South of the Pumphouse" skilfully combines classic motifs of epic struggle and intelligent layers of imagery. But like Les Claypool's music, the material is still hugely innovative, highly independent and excruciatingly thought-provoking. This stunning debut is sure to be a cult phenomenon, doing for books what Donnie Darko and the Coen brothers did for film: bring disquiet back to the forefront of popular writing.
