Summary
"Jimmy Blackburn grows up in the Midwest believing the things that adults tell him. He questions his teachers and they lie to him. He questions his parents and his father beats him. He questions the world and it hurts him. And so Jimmy Blackburn becomes a killer. In this novel we meet many of Blackburn's twenty-one victims. They include law enforcers, writers, adulterers, auto mechanics, and other liars. This is an exceptional novel, at once riotously funny and searingly potent: a vision of America through the eyes of the central bogeyman of our culture."--Publisher
Summary
In a novel that exposes the absurdity of popular American sociologies of mass murder, readers are introduced to victims of Jimmy Blackburn--a man who grew up being lied to and beaten--and became a serial killer. Reprint
