Pancake is the patron saint of modern hillbilly fiction, and the connection between his work and Woodrell’s speaks of the serious literary purpose and cultural intelligence that underlies the joyous pandemonium of Give Us a Kiss. All of this palaver about history and purpose perhaps makes the book sound literary (in the unfortunate sense of that word) and tedious, when of course nothing could be further from the truth.

And Give Us a Kiss is Woodrell at his most fun and uninhibited.

My imagination is always skulking about in a wrong place  . And Give Us a Kiss is Woodrell at his most fun and uninhibited. The novel strains reality, maybe, especially toward the end, but the skewering of academic writing programs and his go-for-broke approach render those concerns non-starters. Give Us a Kiss is a blast along the lines of Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas and Confederacy of Dunces maybe crossed with Justified. I can't give much higher praise for a book that held my attention for hours across the Ohio and Indiana turnpikes.

Oh, Daniel Woodrell, you keep me up way too late at night reading your books and I love you for this!

Give Us A Kiss is where Woodrell coined the term country noir to describe his genre of writing and storytelling. Fellow country noir writer Court Merrigan defines the genre as such: country noir carves out a space for the small, the local, the defiant and the defeated. In short, it’s where the genres of crime and noir fiction intersect with the rural lives Woodrell has chosen to bring to life. Any casual reader can see that Woodrell knows well the people and places he’s writing about

Niagra showed the way, steering the lugging Toyota down the rock road a half mile at first, which was the part of the course where the chance of accidentally being spotted was highest.

Niagra killed the headlights but knew the way blind. She kept the pace down and bounced us along in low gear

Grinin
There is a raw component to Woodrell's work that will speak to you. This book is a multi layered read consisting of part crime story, part love story and a generational glimpse of a part of cultural America.
Another aspect of this read is the difficulty to change from ones roots and what one could almost call karma or destiny.
I won't discuss the plot look elsewhere for that.
Highly recommended.

This early book is a terrific read. It bristles with sexuality and tension.
Is there a little too much character and not enough action? Perhaps.
But the action is riveting. And the characters are real enough to reach out and touch.
This guy is so good.

Woodrell is a genius. He straddles the line between fiction and (dare I say it?) poetry. Stunning. Just read it, you'll see.

I've read this novel many times. Daniel Woodrell calls it "Country Noir", I call it "hillbilly noir". A not so successful author returns to his Ozark roots to help his bad brother get in a marijuana crop and trouble with another bad family follows. Dark, funny, and very poetic writing. Daniel Woodrell is my favorite living writer and this is my favorite novel of his.

When our book club chose this book as part of its new author day, I thought "what kind of trash is this." But like a good shot of moonshine, it was revolting enough to leave its mark and tasty enough to make me want more. HOnestly, why hasn't this guy gotten his due? There is more slick writing, quirky characters and raunchy adventure i nthis book then many books twice its length. And with the lead character a sort of hillbilly writer/philosopher (that is not a contradiction in terms!) one has a narrator throughout the book who never fails to make you laugh. THe book centers around the adventures of Redmond Doyle, a hack writer who returns home to the Ozarks from a more "high falutin" environment, only to find out that you cannot escape your past or your roots. As he gets pulled into the inevitable feuds and violence that is part of Ozark lore, he wonders why he ever left in the first place.With plenty of fights, sex, hillbilly weirdness and the ramblings of the main character, the book is liike a canoe ride down the river in Deliverance. It will make you squeal like a pig!

Change the scene from the wind-swept plains of Troy to the holler belt of the Arkansas-Missouri line, from the bronze age of Greece to the flint stones of the Ozarks. Woodrell has done it again; he has made more good stories and money, we guess, from retelling the tales of Homer than anyone ought. But his gifts are Homeric and his language pure poetry, so I guess I will forgive him. We have the promise of plunder in a plot of weed, vendettas and feuds as large as they are when life is reduced almost to a state of nature, Greeks and Trojans, Dollys and Redmonds. We have a wise old Nestor grandpaw in Panda, two brothers, one huge and one crafty like the big Ajax and little Ajax of the Iliad, we have a pugnacious hero Doyle who has to prove himself at every encounter like an Achilles, we have beautiful war-spoils woman in Niagra (rhymes with Viagra) who, like Cassandra, speaks unconvincing prose, we have a Hector who has to die, unafraid though he is after having his nose shoved back into his skull, its metal repair shimmering in the moonlight like a piece of armor. And we have Woodrell's perfect transmogrification of these basic elements into a gripping story filled with the details of place, time and language. Read it!
