BSC Reviews gets passionate

"Victor Gischler is fast becoming a pulp renaissance man. [In VAMPIRE A GO-GO] Gischler keeps the body count high, the tone hilarious, and the ideas and satiric jabs sharp and smart.

In The Deputy we follow part-time policeman and failed musician Toby Sawyer as he has the most completely fucked night of his entire life. Now this is about as fast-fucking-paced as books get, one giant hair-raising game of out-of-the-frying-pan-and-into-fire.

Make no mistake: this shit is just as fast and funny as what we’ve come to expect from the man who gave us such classics as Pistol Poets and Shotgun Opera; it’s just that this time out it hurts more, the characters dig under a couple more layers of your skin. The Deputy is Victor Gischler’s finest book to date, and you better fucking believe that’s fucking saying something. "
