ISBN: 978-1550228557

The Recommend:

The kids love the vampires, and there’s no better recent vampire tale than Derek McCormack’s The Show That Smells.

Mixing high fashion, the supernatural and country-western music in the backdrop of the most terrifying carnival since The Machinist, the novel packs more comedy and tragedy into 100-odd pages of sharp, minimalist prose than the entirety of the Twilight saga.

If there’s someone on your list for whom six pages of dead baby jokes is is his/her idea of heaven, you know what book to buy.

Combine with McCormack’s other vampire / country-western masterpiece, The Haunted Hillbilly, for maximum enjoyment.
