Cockfighter is the stunning novel of a singleminded man whose pursuit of the Cockfighter of the Year medal takes him into the seamy underbelly of rural Southern life…into the hot, dusty small towns where hoarse, sweating men crouch around a cockpit, cheering as two gamecocks with steel spurs tear at each other…and where beautiful willing women administer their own special brand of succor to winner and loser alike.
