Noir in real life. Rob Pierce molds a perfectly imperfect character. He's flawed, at times mean, but in the long run you see he's trying to be the best man he can be. Uncle Dust is a strangely lyrical look at the edge of polite society and the people who live and play there. Bad can be good.
We just got Route 12, a lovely novella by Marietta Miles.
Set in Virginia and Tennessee in the 1970s, the book is a wonderful, poetic take on the devastating effects of trauma and abandonment on a couple of special teenagers who have a tragic, inevitable meeting. The book is spare, tightly written, and never, ever sentimental — just the way we like it here at All Due Respect Books. Plus, there is plenty of crime and just the worst kind of human behavior. You know, the fun stuff.
Coming most likely Spring of 2016. More info to come.
