284pp , ABOUT THE AUTHOR :: James Myers Thompson ( Anadarko , Oklahoma, September 27, 1906 - Huntington Beach, California, April 7, 1977 ) was an American author and writer of novels policiacas.El world of Jim Thompson is nihilistic and it is full of losers, exploited , sociopaths and psychopaths ; no other moral than the gain. His best novels are written in first person. He wrote autobiographical novels such as Bad Boy (Bad Boy ) , which recounts her childhood and Unprocessed ( Roughneck ), although the biographical elements are constant in all his novels . His language is an untranslatable and economic slang with the expression : In many books I've read , the author seems to derail , mad as reaches the climax . Start forget punctuation , release all words once and wanders about the stars that blink and plunging into a deep ocean opaque. And there is no way of knowing if the protagonist is on top of the girl or a stone. I think this kind of hobby happens to have a great intellectual value. (From The murderer inside me ) . He is a master in the design of the characters, especially the psychopaths , and presents a grim and cruel world view of human existence . His novelistic art summed it up in a lucky phrase : " There are 32 ways to write a story and I 've used them all, but there is only one plot : things are not what they seem." In his novels often appear frequently memories of his father twisted like revenge by ferocious Oedipus complex ; this is also combines the recurring theme of castration. Moreover, their protagonists usually suffer a kind of split personality . In 1280 souls the protagonist is a sheriff southern psychopath who poses as silly, being as it is heartless , cynical and dreadfully intelligent. It offers a vision of a series of depraved and corrupt characters with a mastery of language ( slang almost untranslatable , but very expressive ) dumbfounding . It is considered his best novel along with wild Night . He also wrote Probation, The Grifters ,
