Our protagonist and his accomplice--the one and only Carver Canute--set out down the Old Spur Line in search of the legendary Kudzu House, where an old couple is purported to have been swallowed whole by a hungry vine."--

" Above the soft wash of rain, Fang relates his close call with Old Man Demp, a tale that begins with one foot set smack dab where it didn't belong, where the KEEP OUT signs had been hidden by bracken." "I first met Carver and his insane brother, Skitch, ten weeks ago at a Hickman County roadhouse. Honky-tonk music and stale smoke hung in the air as Carver announced to the crowd it was his birthday. Skitch sat back in silence, wearing sunglasses indoors and holding his hand over a match flame. ' Like they do in them movies.' Carver bought a round for the whole bar, I figure with all that inheritance, and the jukebox blared: I LIKE MY WOMEN JUST A LITTLE ON THE TRASHY SIDE./ WHEN THEY WEAR THEIR CLOTHES TOO TIGHT AND THEIR HAIR IS DIED./ TOO MUCH LIPSTICK AND TOO MUCH ROUGE/ GETS ME EXCITED, LEAVES ME FEELING CONFUSED./ AND I LIKE MY WOMEN JUST A LITTLE ON THE TRASHY SIDE.......So away we went into the night. Skitch sat shotgun while the two lovebirds dry-humped in the back seat. What had i gotten myself into?"
