Charlie Huston channels his anger in 'Skinner'
These things have happened in Charlie Huston's novels: People are shot, strangled, bludgeoned, raped; a cat is tortured; brains are splattered. With his dark imagination, you might expect Huston to be a black-clad, moody goth, or a cigarette-smoking nihilist with a taste for the macabre. Instead, he's soft-spoken, with a quiet manner and a careful, disciplined bearing.
