There certainly is dog fighting in A FEAST OF SNAKES. This book is unbelievably nasty and brutal--a real gem. My closest comparative approximation is to say that it reads like a mean Flannery O'Connor on speed and whiskey, without any of that redemptive stuff mixed in. If you're in NY, the Strand had a whole stack of them for $3.95 about two months ago. Doug 3
