Pinckney Benedict, "Hackberry"

A guy befriends his neighbor, hits his ex-stripper girlfriend and gets his ass kicked in a bar fight.

(from Town Smokes)

So far, this is the only Pinckney Benedict story I didn’t love 100%. The language was just a little awkward and over-explanatory, and the rural vibe teetered a bit closer to the redneck formula than I would have liked. That said Jimmy Lee was a pretty fascinating character and I’m glad nobody got flattened by a coal truck because that move was telegraphed.
Hah, look at this.
