Hideout: Bibliodiscoteque #21
Yuengling Lager, grievous eye injuries, and not being able to rely on any character surviving to the final page: These are the main ingredients to most books by Duane Swierczynski.
Swierczynski’s work is a literary barfight: Don’t start it unless you plan to finish it. Seriously, I’ve spent entire day-offs and cross-continent flights unable to tear myself away. In fact, I pity most readers who have to stop between chapters.
This winter (for my soon to be snowbound friends) pick-up one of Swierczynski’s novels and pray to be snowed in.
I suggest starting with either the story of the mute-Irish getaway driver in The Wheelman or Severance Package, the tale of company men (and women) who find that their company has decided to close shop and kill everyone employed. Once you’ve graduated through Swierczynski’s earlier works, you can then dive into his latest tale, and basis for this show, the Charlie Hardie Trilogy Fun & Games, Hell & Gone, and 2012’s finale Point & Shoot.
Here’s a free look at a prequel comic for Fun & Games
