Donald Ray Pollock, "Dynamite Hole"

A boy dodges the draft by hiding out in a rural wasteland.

(from Knockemstiff)

As sick and uncomfortable as this story was, it was also kind of entertaining. The narrator is a horrible bastard, not of the love-to-hate variety, but it’s hard to take your eyes off him. He’s a reliable narrator and an amoral ignorant monster.
