The Alcoholics by Jim Thompson (Black Lizard – 1986)

Black Lizard, 1st printing

Murder wouldn’t matter now, not after his brain was already dead. He’d be better off in the ground, anywhere but where he was, strapped to a table – a mute, tortured imbecile.

Thompson’s dark satire that takes place at El Healtho, a “sanitarium” for, you guessed it, alcoholics. Love that Lucretia!

Originally published in 1953, a paperback original, by Lion Books.
