Summary

Summary

The iconic Texan crime-fighting, bigot-bashing duo meet in this companion to the breakout Hap and Leonard TV series

As a liberal young man in East Texas, Hap Collins is discovering his passion for two-fisted justice in a redneck world. Leonard Pine—black, gay, and the ultimate outsider—is already fighting his own battles against racists and bullies. So when Hap sees Leonard demolishing an angry mob with his fists (and taunts), it’s immediately clear that these two young men have a lot in common.

Discover Joe R. Lansdale's compelling coming-of-age manifesto alongside the second season of the Sundance TV Hap and Leonard series starring Michael K. Williams (The Wire), and James Purefoy (The Following).

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

When you come right down to it, this may be my favorite Hap and Leonard book ever, and that’s saying a lot.”―Chet Williamson, author of Psycho Sanitarium
The dialogue is pitch perfect . . . thoughtful, rather clever, and with enough bullets and banter to satisfy the most demanding reader.”―Sci-Fi and Fantasy Reviews
Everything here is written in Lansdale's inimitable style of down-home East Texas storytelling, and everything is eminently readable and enjoyable. There's humor, there's sadness, there's blood, and there's lemonade. And some cussing, too. Great stuff, irresistible reading.”―Bill Crider, Pop Culture Magazine
Exceptional . . . Hap and Leonard: Blood and Lemonade is a wonderful piece of storytelling, and a worthy addition to a great series.”―October Country
The reason Lansdale can get away with outrageous literary behavior the way he does is because at the center of his every story lie the beating hearts of characters who are as true and honest a reflection of a real person as Lansdale can make them . . . Highly recommended.”―Fantasy & Science Fiction
Hap and Leonard: Blood and Lemonade is something truly special. You are going to love it”―Horror Drive-In
Magnificent storytelling.”―Char’s Horror Corner
Joe R. Lansdale's Blood and Lemonade is a masterpiece of addictive and stylistic storytelling.”―Risingshadow
If Frank Dobie is the Lone Star State’s Homer, if Larry McMurtry is the Texas equivalent of Henry James, then Joe R. Lansdale has to be the Mark Twain behind the pine curtain. No other writer―in Texas or any other state in the union―can switch between gut-bursting humor and nail-biting suspense with as much heart and grace as Lansdale . . . Blood and Lemonade is a must-have for just about everyone.”―Texas Books in Review
Joe Lansdale is our East Texas Hemingway, and here's another example of what makes him great. In Hap & Leonard: Blood and Lemonade, he carves out beauty with plain words and direct sentences. Some of the stories in this mosaic novel are horrifying, others gritty, sad, thrilling, and funny, but all of them are beautiful. I ate it up.”―Daryl Gregory, author of Spoonbenders and We Are All Completely Fine
An amazingly vivid style that feels like Hemingway. Themes that are especially important for our time. With these early adventures of his compelling Hap and Leonard characters, Joe. R. Lansdale hits a new high.”―David Morrell, New York Times bestselling author of Murder As a Fine Art
Blood and Lemonade is the best of Lansdale and the best of Hap and Leonard. As urgent as it is timeless. As fun as it is thoughtful. It haunts you while it kicks your ass. Joe never lets you down, just shows you over and over why he's the best.”―Jim Mickle, director of Cold in July
[STARRED REVIEW] “Showcases some of Lansdale’s most personal and reflective writing to date.”―Publishers Weekly
