Harry Crews was born in Bacon County, Georgia in 1935. His is now a retired Porfessor of English living in Florida. He has published over 23 books.From Booklist:
Crews is one of a select group of writers who have received significant praise from academic literary critics (he has been the focus of about a dozen dissertations and a special issue of Southern Quarterly) and yet can remain confident that their books will be squirreled away in the recesses of public libraries by engrossed teenagers (some of whom grow up to become literary critics). Crews' latest testosterone--fueled trance of cryptic meaning and freakish violence revolves around Major Melton, a marine-turned-English-professor protagonist who finds a suspicious birthmark on his infant son's genitalia and suspects his wife of infidelity. A violent run-in with his in-laws and some pit bulls begins the carnage, which quickly escalates into a grotesquely Freudian revenge fantasy. Between splatters, Crews revisits some familiar themes--scars, dogs, karate, physical pain, regret--and continues the obsessive examination of complicated blood relationships that has defined his career. Although those new to Crews may be shocked by the entire book, his die-hard fans will be shocked merely by the unfamiliar notions of reconciliation that shape its ending. Brendan Driscoll
