HAP AND LEONARD
by Joe R. Lansdale
Published: March 2016
Available Format(s): Trade Paperback
Soon to be a Spring 2016 SundanceTV series starring Michael K. Williams (The Wire), James Purefoy (Rome), and Christina Hendricks (Mad Men).
“…since I’m not mincing words, let me say that Mr. Lansdale doesn’t mince them either. That trip from point ‘A’ to point ‘B’ (with some interesting stops along the way) is filled with well-wrought characters, black humor, knife-sharp dialogue, and enough violence to make even the most jaded Quentin Tarantino aficionado sit up and smile.”
Hap and Leonard have never fit the profile. Hap Collins looks like a good ’ol boy, but his liberal politics don’t match. After a number of failed careers, Hap has found his calling: kicking ass.
“A folklorist’s eye for telling detail and a front-porch raconteur’s sense of pace.”
—New York Times Book Review
Vietnam veteran Leonard Pine is even more complicated: black, conservative, gay…and an occasional arsonist. With Leonard on the job with his childhood friend Hap, both small-time crooks and the masterminds of the Dixie Mafia had best be extremely nervous.
“Like gold standard writers Elmore Leonard and the late Donald Westlake, Joe R. Lansdale is one of the more versatile writers in America.”
—Los Angeles Times
Joe R. Lansdale’s popular Texan crime-fighting duo is immortalized in this hard-nosed collection of short stories and tall tales. Additionally, you’ll find one brand-new Hap and Leonard adventure and an original introduction by New York Times bestselling author Michael Koryta (SO COLD THE RIVER).
“Lansdale is a storyteller in the Texas tradition of outrageousness…but amped up to about 100,000 watts.”
James Purefoy and Michael K. Williams as the titular characters in SundanceTV’s HAP AND LEONARD
