NPR : National Public Radio:
"A great film adaptation is the best kind of publicity for an author, and the prolific Daniel Woodrell has certainly seen his profile rise following the success of last year's Winter's Bone, a powerful rendering of his 2006 novel (and a finer interpretation than Ride With the Devil, Ang Lee's 1999 take on Woodrell's Woe to Live On). The Outlaw Album, Woodrell's just-released first collection of short stories, digs deeper still into the cinematic grit of contemporary Ozarks life, should the Coen brothers or Drive's Nicolas Winding Refn have any interest. The loaded grumblings and dismally descriptive names of Woodrell's characters — Shuggie, Thigpen, Shade, to mention just a few — feel destined for the big screen."
