From the advent via Tayari Jones:

Atlanta itself is against the law scene. in spite of everything, Georgia used to be based as a de facto penal colony and in 1864, Sherman burned the town to the floor. we'd argue approximately no matter if the arson was once the crime or the reaction to the crime, yet this can be undeniable: Atlanta is a urban sewn from the ashes and every thing that grows this is instantly fertilized and corrupted by means of the past...

These tales don't unavoidably comply with the normal expectancies of noir...However, all of them proportion the standard of revealing the rot beneath the odor of magnolia and pine. Noir, for my part, is extra a question of tone than content material. the ethical universe of the tale is as major because the actual house. Noir is a realm the place the great men seldom win; probably they rarely exist in any respect. Few undesirable deeds pass unrewarded, and reliable intentions will not be the line to hell, yet are hell itself...Welcome to Atlanta Noir. Come take a seat at the veranda, or the terrace of a high-rise condominium. Pour your self a pitcher of candy tea, and improve it with a slug of bourbon. positioned your ft up. get pleasure from those tales, and watch your back.
