Joe R. Lansdale

We welcome Joe Lansdale back to Interbang with the new Hap and Leonard novel, rich with Lansdale’s trademark humor, whip-smart dialogue, and plenty of ass-kicking adventures. Hap and Leonard are an unlikely pair: Hap, a self-proclaimed white trash rebel, and Leonard, a tough-as-nails Black, gay, Vietnam vet and Republican. Still, each is the closest friend the other of them has in the world.

After years of crime-solving companionship, something’s changed in THE ELEPHANT OF SURPRISE: Hap, recently married to their P.I. boss, Brett, is now a family man. Amidst the worst flood East Texas has seen in years, the two run across a woman who’s had her tongue nearly cut out, pursued by a heavily armed pair of goons. Turns out the girl survived a mob hit, and the boss has come to clean up the mess.

On a chase that blows the East Texas swampgrass back, Hap and Leonard must save the girl and vanquish her foes before the foes get them first. With a new case to solve, and a brand-new challenge to their relationship, will Hap and Leonard’s friendship survive? Make that: Will Hap and Leonard survive?

Joe Lansdale is the author of more than four dozen novels, including Jackrabbit Smile, the Edgar-award winning The Bottoms, Sunset and Sawdust, and Leather Maiden. He has received nine Bram Stoker Awards, the American Mystery Award, the British Fantasy Award, and the Grinzane Cavour Prize for Literature. He lives with his family in Nacogdoches, Texas
