Piquant by Richard Godwin is six spicy short stories of sex and violence.
There’s madness,mayhem, murder,misogyny and misanthropy. There’s carnage and cadavers and cannibalism.
And there’s The Mustard Man.
Like a cross between The League Of Gentlemen’s Papa Lazarou and The Night Of The Hunter’s Reverend Harry Powell, The Mustard Man frees himself from the pages of a lurid pulp novel and wreaks havoc across the United States, stopping only to cook. And record an album with JJCale.
Piquent is a deliriously, deliciously dark and twisted collection and not for those with a delicate constitution. But for those of us with stronger stomaches, get stuck in !
