  Harry Crews writes some absolutely wonderful books. Eccentrics, some New South gothic strands twisted with Old South rednecks and ... well, maybe "eccentrics" is enough.
  There's a hard-boiled sensibility in his writing. Rarely moves into strictly a crime fiction arena, but his settings usually move among the areas frequented by fringe-type huckster and con artist characters -- one of Willeford's cock fighters wouldn't be an intruder in some of these books.
  FEAST OF SNAKES, CAR, THE GYPSY'S CURSE -- all these are excellent and highly recommended.
