Drinkin' rye and water with Grandma. Guns in False Creek. Frat boy homies from the North Delta ghetto. Samuel L. Jackson. Phantom Lord & Metallica. A kid who's got the hots for his mom...'Hunh'? That's right. It's all here in this collection of immediate, lean and visceral short fiction from Clint Burnham.
"Stripped down language of the street (in this case, Vancouver streets) propels these hard-edged tales that feel like a punk mix of Tarantino and Bukowski." - The Province
"Burnhamuses language vividly, has an observant eye and the ability to turn current events in to fiction." - Broken Pencil Magazine
