"Don't forget, boy," said Bishop Michael Brusard to Father Maximilian Krech on the day of the exorcism, "the devil will [f**k] you with everything it has... It'll distort time and place, events and people... If you let it, the devil has power to make little girls seem... older than they really are." Thus the New Orleans parish priest is warned about seventeen-year-old Gabrielle Ayer, queen of Mardi Gras, who wants to be dead-like her mother-and through this wish opens herself to Pandora's box of darkest evil. Little Girl Blue is a harrowing of hell story-frightening, violent and apocalyptic, yet also irreverent and funny. One commentator described the novel as Clive Barker on crack, leaving us to wonder, Is there any hope left for humanity? "The Devil," Brusard pontificates, "he can be a funny guy." But don't laugh too hard Calvin, or someone like him, waits just outside your window. Cloppity-clop!
