Abstract:

America's low-key high priest of human vice and violently wounded psyches, Jim Thompson emerged from the darkness with this his first novel. Now and On Earth is proof that Thompson has always been the bleak and compassionate teller of tawdry terror that critics and fans have come to treasure. Amid the fresh landscape and smooth illusions of wartime California a young bellboy is tipped into a world too rich in corruption. A lonely down-and-out writer tries to finish just one more book before the bottle finishes him off first. A worn out and tumbling Okie family, displaced and depressed, tries to hold on to the coarse edge of destruction at the end of the road. Thompson takes these characters and imbues them with a disgruntled grace and disillusion that perfectly echoes the dark sinking sensation that American prosperity was built on.
