Featuring the novels: "Wild at Heart", "Perdita Durango", "Sailor's Holiday", "Sultans of Africa", "Consuelo's Kiss" and "Bad Day for the Leopard Man". "The Wild Life of Sailor and Lula" presents Gifford's best prose work as he originally conceived it: six inter-locking novels which chart the riotous and stormy lives of Sailor Ripley and Lula Pace Fortune - the horribly likeable, sex-driven, star-crossed lovers immortalised in David Lynch's movie "Wild at Heart".
Masterful with dialogue, and always full of vitality and humour, these novels show a writer at the height of his - considerable - talent.
As Elmore Leonard said of him, "Gifford cuts right through to the heart of what makes a good novel readable and entertaining ...the way Barry Gifford does it, it's high art".
