Jack Parker knows all too well how treacherous turn of the century East Texas can be. His parents did not survive a smallpox epidemic. His grandfather was murdered. Now his sister Lula has been kidnapped by a criminal who may believe wearing a dead man's clothes protects them both from death.

With bounty hunter Shorty, a charismatic and cunning dwarf, and Eustace, a gravedigging son of an ex-slave, the heartbroken young Jack sets off on an epic quest to rescue his sister from the corrupt men who control much of the new territory.

In the throes of being civilized, East Texas is still a wild, feral place. Oil wells spurt liquid money from the ground. But blood and redemption rule supreme.

Quotes & Awards

  • The Thicket is a novel that earns a place on the same bookshelf as Charles Portis’s True Grit and Cormac McCarthy’s All the Pretty Horses. Joe Lansdale is a supremely gifted writer, and his novel is one of the most enjoyable reading experiences I’ve had in years.”

    Ron Rash, bestselling author of Serena

  • The Thicket presents Joe Lansdale at his finest—which is to say, at the high-water mark of all storytelling. Nuanced, compelling, darkly humorous, and remarkably vivid, The Thicket quickly becomes a one-sitting novel, told in a voice that would have called Huck Finn himself in from the river. Lansdale marries story and style in a way most writers never achieve.”

    Michael Koryta, New York Times bestselling author of The Prophet
