NOIR NOW: CAPE COD NOIR!

NOIR NOW: CAPE COD NOIR!

AKASHIC NOIR

DAVIL L. ULIN ~ EDITOR

KINDLE EDITION ~ $9.99

FROM THE INTRODUCTION BY DAVID L. ULIN:
For me, Cape Cod is a repository of memory: forty summers in the same house will do that to you. But it is also a landscape of hidden tensions, which rise up when we least anticipate. In part, this has to do with social aspiration, which is one of the things that brought my family, like many others, to the Cape. In part, it has to do with social division, which has been a factor since at least the end of the nineteenth century, when then summer trade began. There are lines here, lines that get crossed and lines that never get crossed, the kinds of lines that form the web of noir. Call it what you want--summer and smoke is how I think of it--but that's the Cape Cod at the center of this book.

Featuring brand-new stories by: David L. Ulin, Ben Greenman, Lizzie Skurnick, Dana Cameron, Jedidiah Berry, Paul Tremblay, Vincent McCaffery, Seth Greenland, Kaylie Jones, Adam Mansbach, Elyssa East, Fred Leebron, and William Hastings.
