"The narrator of " Hogg " is a Huck Finn€́“like youngster caught in society's most sinister seams--but unlike Huck, he passes no moral judgments on the violence he takes part in " . " . " .Hogg " is the story of a man--a depraved trucker named Franklin Hargus, whom the people he works for call Hogg--and of the nameless boy who tells the story of three days of unspeakable sexual violence and devastation, which, together, they initiate in a small seaside American city in the middle of the last century. Hogg is a towering brute who makes his living as a rapist for hire. By the end of a series of vicious attacks, kidnappings, and mass murders, the reader will wonder who is more corrupt: the man or the boy. Samuel R. Delany completed his first draft of " Hogg " within a day, if not within hours, of the 1969 Stonewall Riots in New York City and revised it over the next four years, though it was not released until 1995.".
