"I've been reading Joe Lansdale's Hap and Leonard books of late (highly, highly recommended). They graphically depict what a beating can do to a man, physically and psychologically."

Brad then asked:

"In your opinion, which of Lansdale's books best illustrate your point above?"

Most definitely The Two-Bear Mambo, where Hap & Leonard (along with a key side-player) are very rudely reminded of their own human frailty. They still haven't gotten over it in the next book, Bad Chili.
