¿uién tiene la potestad de perdonar una vida o de dar muerte? En el caso de Dillon un vendedor a domicilio de escasa moral todas las dudas se disipan cuando conoce a la joven y frágil Mona ue du Top notch pulp masterpiece Jim Thompson has a well deserved reputation as one of the greatest of all the pulp writers He wrote thirty novels in the late 1940's and the 1950's many of which later became box office hits But watching a movie based on one of Thompson's books is not the same as reading the original material Although hundreds of writers have tried to ape his style there was only one Jim Thompson His tales are sordid They are filled with psychopaths and grifters His heroes are anti heroes They are not just criminals but often mean violent sadistic men Also his books are filled with a sardonic sense of humor that often leaves the reader laughing out loudA Hell of A Woman is classic Jim Thompson It is filled with the kind of characters and sardonic humor that Thompson is famous for It is told in the first person and the reader is left to figure how much of what Dolly Dillon says is accurate and how much is his making excuses for his actionsAs with all of Thompson's books it is not the plot which is ultimately fascinating but his bizarre despair filled world beginning in the first chapter with the shocking incident of the old lady offering up her sweet niece in exchange for whatever trinkets a traveling salesman is willing to part withThere are simply no redeeming characters in this book Dillon is wife beating old lady murdering scum Mona eagerly wants Dillon to kill her aunt so they can run off with the money Joyce is sloppy and trampy and money hungry It's a bleak miserable world that Dillon lives in and everyone is a welcher a scoundrel a cheatBut what Thompson does is take this miserable existence and makes it interesting He tells it with Dillon's voice with Dillon bitching about the slow unattractive waitresses and when asked why he doesn't try some other restaurant Dillon says its all the same everywhere nothing is any better anywhere No one else writes like this Thompson didn't just focus on the anti heroes but he got inside their heads and the reader felt their misery and Thompson did this way before anyone else got wise to doing it Indeed it is the physicality of emotions that Thompson conveys so wellIt is indeed a pulp noir masterpiece but it clearly will not appeal to everyone given its focus on twisted people
