Buk and Jimmy Go West
(LegumeMan Books – Out of Print)
Film obsessed psycho-killer Buk Thompson is on a bloody pilgrimage. Driving through the American Southwest, murdering his way to Hollywood, home of the stars that have been his only friends since childhood, Buk is having a ball, trimming the extras from this film we call life.
When fate throws him in the path of the innocent Jimmy, Buk decides to take the boy on as a protégé and teach him the killing game.
The script calls for sadism, murder and movie trivia as the pair blaze their way west, but Jimmy is more than some mere supporting actor. Unexpectedly, old Buk finds he might have a chance at something he’s never considered before. Redemption.
A little bit Badlands, mixed with a small helping of From Dusk Till Dawn, Buk and Jimmy Go West is one road trip that is wild at heart and 100% pure adrenaline.
