The Longest Suicide


The Longest Suicide by Scott Puryear is a not so average book about pigs, packinghouses, cowboys and Hemingway. It’s part prosaic, part poetry, and all insanity.

“When one is almost insane and one is going to kill oneself within a few days – in between flashes of brilliance and genius and philosophy, there are also issues of what could have been and what should have been.” ~Scott Puryear

Once you have followed the degradation of D. DeWayne Meyer to his bitter end, you’ll have a pretty good idea what it must be like to lose your mind, and your life.

“I’ve never said many quotable things. Probably because I’m too average.” ~D. DeWayne Meyer


Let’s Make a Deal
