Review of Pete Dexter's "Spooner"

Here’s the url to my review of Pete Dexter’s new novel, Spooner, which appears today in the Dallas Morning News:
It’s a terrific book. For Dexter fans, I’d say it’s my favorite since Deadwood and Paris Trout, vaulting it over The Paperboy, which is a good novel, but rather somber and murky. Spooner is out-and-out funny at times, such as toward the end, when it describes the end of a feud between Spooner and a pair of gay weight-lifters, and earlier, when it describes Spooner’s sadsack career as a door-to-door salesman.
