Description:

Boston. 1991. Houghton Mifflin. 1st Printing. Very Good In Dustjacket. 152 pages. hardcover. ISBN: 0395515602. inventory # 5357. FROM THE PUBLISHER - NEVER DIE is an outrageous dark comedy of lust and revenge in a corrupt frontier town inhabited by a bizarre circus of characters. The time is 1910. Fernando, a gunfighter with a university education, grows tired of his miserable town of Nitburg - rife with corruption - and resolves to burn it to the ground. His girlfriend Stella serenades him with love for his character and manliness, but with difficulty, since she has tuberculosis. The malevolent Judge Nitburg, who controls the town he renamed for himself, dispatches a dwarf into the night to break Fernando's kneecaps. Unable to walk, Fernando sinks into a morphine stupor of self-pity. NEVER DIE is the story of his recovery and his determination to cleanse the town of evil. Classic Hannah, this novel is an outrageous, dark comedy featuring gays, money, the West, the South, and most of modern America, all in a corrupt 1910 frontier town. Larry McMurtry says, 'Barry Hannah is the best fiction writer in the South since Flannery O'Connor'. Bookseller Inventory #

Synopsis: In 1910, in a frontier town rife with corruption, a colorful group of characters--a dwarf and a judge who own the town and the judge's daughter, Nandina, who loves Fernando, a gunfighter who vows to destroy the town--take part in a dark comedy of lust and revenge

From Library Journal: We are in the corrupt Western town of Nitburg at the turn of the century. The town and its people are in the last, desperate throws of a dying past and a murderous future. What "never dies" in Hannah's extravagant satire is a feeling for our ability to inflict endless, grotesque, and mindless havoc on ourselves, others, and the environs. The story concerns an evil judge who rules the town with an iron hand and a hero who is more pretty than brave. They collide amid the squalor of whores, dopers, a tubercular lover, a malevolent dwarf, and the coming of the automobile. The result is a ritualized bloodletting of farcical proportion: just about everybody dies or is maimed. While one is left breathless and awash in the cleansing fires that engulf the town, Hannah lingers with his dark theme that such renewal is illusional, and all that is lasting is our blind stubbornness to persist in all our questionable glory. A wonderful work; highly recommended.
