While there is a good bit of variety to these stories, this volume is ultimately mostly a failure. The longest stories, especially, seem like failed attempts at novels. The thing that connects why these stories fail isn't that so many characters are unlikable, it is that they the author fails to ever show us who they are. They are mostly uncommunicative, like the glazier in the longest story that takes place right after WW I. Not only is the protagonist uncommunicative and unrevealed by the author, that holds true of just about every character. I came to this book after really enjoying the author's Galveston, a noir novel that did a much better job of us making us care about--or at least be interested in--its characters' fates.… (mais)

Shattering, incredibly well-written and violent story of a bad man and how his interaction with an 18-year old girl he rescues changes both their lives and the life of a little girl. That's pretty inadequate and doesn't really do the book justice, but there should be no spoilers here. There are a number of shocking scenes that may take you by surprise. As I say with all the best books I review: just read it.

A collection of stories from True Detective's NP. You can see the style of True Detective build in these stories. Mostly about people on the lower end of the economic ladder they were not necessarily down and out, yet still facing the trials and vicissitudes of life. Set mostly on the gulf coast of Texas and Louisiana the sense of place was ok and sometimes his metaphor didn't work, as in trying to be literary. Still some of his insights made me ponder. A unique and good collection of stories.

A great neo-noir that keeps taking familiar roads and then takes a hard cut away from them into some rougher side roads. Bleak with shimmers of gold in the darkness, similar to his True Detective run (which is the reason I, and probably you, are interested in the first place).
