What other readers are saying about this title:
Emily Lloyd said:
Woodrell is an absolute master at building tension in relaxed prose, and this novel has a haunting and wonderful force. "Sweet mister"'s [the title comes from his mother's pet name for the protagonist, 13-yr-old Shug] death is a figurative one, yet it feels more tragic than a literal one.
