from Proving It
Andrew Vachss' writing has been described as "red-hot and serious as a punctured lung" (Playboy), "hypnotically violent ... made up of equal parts broken concrete block and razor wire" (Chicago Sun-Times), and "short and choppy, like the ticking of a time bomb" (Seattle Post-Intelligencer).
In this audiobook, Burt Reynolds brings to life 27 of Vachss' trademark life-at-ground-zero stories. In "Dope Fiend," a woman suffering from both terminal cancer and a drug-withholding doctor finds the hard answer to each. "Dead Game" rips open the myths surrounding pit bulls, from both sides. And an ex-con finds that, sometimes in life, payback is a beautiful thing, in the story "Proving It." After you hear these 27 stories—and the bonus track of David Joe Wirth reprising his stage performance of "Placebo"—you'll understand why The Washington Post declared Vachss "Lord of the Asphalt Jungle."
