BILLY SILVER by Daniel Volpe
This story offers the best use of the “tattoo” device I’ve ever encountered. The book starts out like a Burroughs-esque, scum-of-the-earth character drama, then guillotines into a splatterfest of bat-shit-crazy gross-out that threatens to empty your breadbasket in your lap, all told in a tight Palahniukish prose that eerily forces the reader’s perspectives point-blank on the id-giggling mayhem. This is a unique story that should ruffle the corridors of the New Extremism in American fiction.
--Edward Lee, author of White Trash Gothic, Haunter of the Threshold, and The Bighead.
“In Billy Silver, author Daniel J. Volpe proves to be a promising newcomer with the spunk of Edward Lee and minimalism of Bentley Little.”
—Dustin LaValley, author of Songs from a Street Sweeper
