From the advent via Tayari Jones:

Atlanta itself is against the law scene. in any case, Georgia used to be based as a de facto penal colony and in 1864, Sherman burned town to the floor. we'd argue approximately no matter if the arson used to be the crime or the reaction to the crime, yet this is often undeniable: Atlanta is a urban sewn from the ashes and every little thing that grows this is immediately fertilized and corrupted via the past...

These tales don't inevitably comply with the normal expectancies of noir...However, all of them percentage the standard of disclosing 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 cross unrewarded, and solid intentions will not be the line to hell, yet are hell itself...Welcome to Atlanta Noir. Come sit down at the veranda, or the terrace of a high-rise residence. Pour your self a tumbler of candy tea, and toughen it with a slug of bourbon. positioned your ft up. get pleasure from those tales, and watch your back.
