Synopsis: After his life spirals out of control, a young man navigates a world of juggalos, transients, and petty criminals with Shane, an enigmatic small-time drug dealer with a penchant for body modification.

From the Inside Flap: "I read Osborne's LOW DOWN DEATH RIGHT EASY last year and thought it was great. This is better than that. All those drunk, unemployed, disillusioned parents in Raymond Carver stories? Their kids are in BLACK GUM and they are drunk and high and listening to Insane Clown Posse. They work on cars or work at the mall or can't find work. They love their moms the best they can. They sometimes have guns. They have sex to feel good and they have sex to feel bad. They love to punch each other because it's the best answer to most of the questions in their lives. In the end, somehow, BLACK GUM is a story about wanting to build a better life, even if you have to use degradation as bricks. There's a great line in here that says, "Every young man fights the truth that he's half his father." That's one of the things I learned from this book. Another was to bring my mom a Reese's peanut butter cup once in a while. Read the book to learn the rest. BLACK GUM is a little Bible and, like the Bible, filled with prophecy and terrible truths."--Dave Newman, author of PLEASE DON'T SHOOT ANYONE TONIGHT"I loved BLACK GUM. Truly, truly loved it...it's a great-ass book." --Scott McClanahan, author of CRAPALACHIA and HILL WILLIAM"Perhaps Osborne's best book yet. Funny, sad and beautiful--a JESUS' SON for these times." --Barry Graham, author of THE BOOK OF MAN (an American Library Association "Best Book of the Year")
