The Death of Sweet MisterOmpelling Woodrell's descriptions seem real and alive and linger long after reading The Boston GlobeWoodrell's Ozarks are cut as cleanly as Flannery O'Connor's Georgia and pocked with characters just as volatile and proud and unpredictable Chicago TribuneSet in the Missouri hill country The Death of Sweet Mister presents one eventful summer in the life of Shug a friendless overweight thirteen year old living with his mother Glenda in the caretaker's cottage at the local cemetery. This is one of the bleakest saddest most hopeless stories I have ever read It tore at my heart What amazes me the most is how well Daniel Woodrell presents the complicated dynamics between Red Glenda and Shug and how clearly we see that the good heart in Shug is never going to be allowed to exist in this sordid world he occupies I began to mourn him on page oneWoodrell employs exactly the right sharp staccato unvarnished writing style that his subject demands He puts his words in the mouths of the characters in dialogue that rings true I could hear the syrup in Glenda’s voice and the cruelty in Red’s I could hear the sorrow below the surface in ShugThere are many ways to die and two of the worst are suicide and murder Shug Akins is murdered and in response he commits suicide
