Additional Information

“An eerie and beautiful novel . . . Its secrets continue to reveal themselves long after the book has been finished.”—The New York Times Book Review
The sun is rising over Moat County, Florida, when Sheriff Thurmond Call is found on the highway, gutted like an alligator. A local redneck is tried, sentenced, and set to fry. Then Ward James, hotshot investigative reporter for the Miami Times, returns to his rural hometown with a death row femme fatale who promises him the story of the decade. She’s armed with explosive evidence, aiming to free—and meet—her convicted “fiancé.” With Ward’s disillusioned younger brother Jack as their driver, they barrel down Florida’s back roads and seamy places in search of The Story, racing flat out into a shocking head-on collision between character and fate as truth takes a back seat to headline news.
“Dexter is a writer who cuts to the bone. There is not a spare word in this searing tale. . . . A bravura performance by one of America’s most original and elegiac voices.”—People
“Hip, hard-boiled and filled with memorable eccentrics . . . The Paperboy burns with the phosphorescent atmosphere of betrayal.”—Time
“A wise and fascinating tale well told.”—Entertainment Weekly

Most Helpful Customer Reviews

This is a really good book, much more complex and nuanced than one reading can reveal.
Read it with a pencil in hand. Have a close look at how water is everywhere.
Think about not being able to get your bearings. Think about being careful what you wish for.
Notice that nobody is intact. Remember the ways we can be foolish when we think that aging is a loss.
Hard story, but I sure do love the way it's written. I recommend it, but it does get tough (emotional parts with violence and serious sex), which I have no trouble with. It's a great book. Better than the movie, of course (although the movie was pretty intense!)
The story of a unhappy family. A wife who left an alcoholic spouse with two sons, and a newspaper business. The husband and sons were unable to expressed themselves when it came to their emotions and needs. It was a dysfunctional family. The newspaper business was their only connection. You could feel the isolation and frustration. A very moving portrait, of a family with talents, and cut off communication.
