Product Description:

"A mingled simulacrum of Charles Manson, David Koresh, and Thomas Harris' Buffalo Bill, Gravey is a sinister yet alluring God figure who enlists young metal head followers to kidnap neighboring women and bring them to his house--there he murders them and buries their bodies in a basement crypt. Through parallel narratives, Three Hundred Million lures readers into the cloven mind of Gravey--and Darrel, his sinister alter ego--even as Flood's secret journal chronicles his own descent into his own, eerily similar psychosis."--

Review:

"This book is the poetry of insanity. Hugely beautiful and monstrously disturbed. I love it, and Blake Butler's mad criminal mind."--Warren Ellis, author of "Gun Machine" and "Crooked Little Vein"

""300,000,000" establishes Blake Butler as our premier literary shaman. . . . [It] draws us into the darkest circles of human motivation. You'll think about it daily and return to it compulsively; it will leave you with fever dreams of the highest possible resolution."--Alissa Nutting, author of "Tampa"

"This book is like a Rorschach blot made of blood. All my darkest visions appeared there. Blake Butler's work is not for the faint of heart. And I mean that as a high compliment."--Jenny Offill, author of "Dept. of Speculation"
