Review:

"Fantastic . . . Lansdale has pulled out all the stops to deliver a rip-roaring tale."―Paula L. Woods, Los Angeles Times

"[A] breakout novel . . . Addictive fun . . . A rollicking ride that's suspenseful, hilarious and satisfyingly redemptive. . . . Lansdale at his funniest and most energetic, with some of the most engaging writing you'll read this year. . . . Lansdale has unleashed something remarkable."―Dwight Silverman, Houston Chronicle

"Joe R. Lansdale takes on Nat Love and the legend of Deadwood Dick in his new novel, Paradise Sky, and hosannas should be sung to him for doing so. Paradise Sky is a remarkable achievement, an instant classic of Western lit. . . . It sometimes seems as if [Lansdale] has published around a thousand novels, and he, no doubt, will publish many more. Paradise Sky may well prove to be Lansdale's best."―W.K. Stratton, Dallas Morning News

"A deftly told yarn. Everything about Paradise Sky is classic Western drama . . . You can almost smell the beans heating up on the campfire and see the rugged beauty of the frontier."―Evan Rodriguez, Austin American-Statesman

"Lansdale is a master storyteller and this novel is a prime example of his talent. Paradise Sky is at times exciting, inspiring, surreal, and heartbreaking. In other words, the novel is true to life."―Josef Hernandez, Examiner.com

"Beautiful literary prose . . . He fills each page with heartbreak, suspense, hope, and laughter."―Eric J. Guignard, New York Journal of Books

"Folksy, cinematic . . . Lansdale fills his pages with true-hearted heroes, dastardly scoundrels, and rollicking adventures."―Publishers Weekly (starred)

"Paradise Sky is a rowdy, funny, suspenseful, and often quite moving yarn."―Booklist (starred)

"This fast-paced Western with its multicultural cast of characters is a winner."―Library Journal (starred)

"It is a full-blooded western, served up unapologetically and masterfully Lansdale-style and set in the 1870s....Paradise Sky is an unblinking and unvarnished look at a rough-edged time and place in United States history, one that never becomes overburdened with the sorrow of tragic events while respecting the good times and recognizing their temporary nature. Lansdale is one of those very rare authors who can have his readers howling with laughter during one sentence while bringing tear to their eyes with the next."―BookReporter

PRAISE FOR JOE LANSDALE:

"Reading Joe Lansdale is like listening to a favorite uncle who just happens to be a fabulous storyteller."―Dean Koontz


"Too often overlooked in American literature is that lineage descending from our early humorists such as Bierce, and from Twain: regional, darkly comic, bizarre. That's where Joe Lansdale lives. He's very Texan, very American, very funny--and a stone brilliant writer."―James Sallis, author of Drive
