The novel belongs to the famous series based on the adventures of Hap and Leonard, notorious protagonists of lots of Joe Lansdale’s novels.
The book is a mosaic one: Hap and Leonard remembers some stories of their childhood – like when the met each other – and tell them to their families and friends.
In the end its a collection of stories linked by a common thread; like other mosaic novel or collections not every story is at the same narrative level, and only some of them leave a mark.
One of the major topic is racism (the setting is mostly in Texas) and the struggle to overcome prejudices (Hap’s mother is a truly positive example).
Overall it’s a nice book, but I still prefer the “standard” novels of the series that deal with a single aventure with a wider scope.
Thanks to the publisher for providing me the copy necessary to write this review.
* Hap and Leonard: Blood and Lemonade by Joe R. Lansdale ★★★☆☆
