The Motel Life: A Novel (P.S.) by Willy Vlautin
The Motel Life: A Novel (P.S.)

jjohnk, November 6, 2010

This novel reads like a delta blues song. Haunting and beautiful, it sucks you in and the first paragraph. It sits you down and says "listen. hear. feel." Put the words to a guitar tune and you got yourself a hit. Loved it.
