This review is from: Blackbird: A Boy Meets The Devil For the First Time (Kindle Edition)
I've been reading about 70 years and Blackbird is one of those rare nuggets of pure gold in a whole mountain of clay . It plays out like the blues, full of riffs and bass and gravel that spin themselves into a mirror of soul not ashamed to get down and dirty and come up dragging us into a light we refused to open our eyes to before. Don't let the stomp and shuffle and guffaws fool you into thinking it's not about you, you ain't gonna get off that easy. I was in Gadsden Alabama for about three months in 1958, and he's not telling any lies. It was my first experience with deep southern segregationist views. A great morality tale told by a masterful and powerful writer about a very unique character.
About this story:
What you are about to read is part of an unpublished novel, based on the absolute worst time of my life: The Winter of 1988-89. It was such a bad time, so many bad things happened all at once, that I am very surprised that I did not kill myself, or someone else. I seriously thought about doing both.
As God only knows if I will ever finish the whole novel, I wanted to share at least part of it, this part, with the world. What you are about to read is true. I was so bad off I was seeing and talking to "Jesus" at the time. And "he" was answering.
I wish what you are about to read had not happened. But it did happen. You may hate me for what I did, but I was doing the best I could with all I was facing at the time. I just could not handle any more.
In what you are about to read, which takes place near the end of the unfinished novel, I called myself Ben Devaux. But the character is me. It is what I saw, felt, and did. I am responsible for it all. Will Bevis.
