The Incurables

(2015)
A novel by

 

"The rarest type of novel that won't only sink its teeth into you, it will leave you relishing the scar."
Todd Robinson


The year is 1953. Disgraced in the psychiatric hospital where he'd practiced for nearly thirty years, Dr. Walter Freeman has taken to traversing the country and proselyting about a very new kind of salvation: the transorbitol lobotomy.

With an ice pick and a hammer, Freeman promises to cure depression and catatonia, delusions and psychosis, with a procedure as simple and safe as curing a toothache.

When he enters the backwater Oklahoma town of Burnwood, however, his own sanity will be tested. Around him swirls a degenerate and delusional cast of characters - a preacher who believes his son to be the Messiah, a demented and violent young prostitute, and a trio of machete-wielding brothers - all weaved into a grotesque narrative that reveals how blind faith in anything can lead to destruction.
