9781617750267: New Jersey Noir (Akashic Noir)

New Jersey may be the sixth smallest US state, but it packs in the most murderous American city and is considered to be, on a square by square mile basis, the most corrupt. A maze of overlapping and competing municipalities, New Jersey will always provide rich opportunities for political entrenchment, deal making and outright thievery. Featuring contributions from a sparkling list of authors including Jonathan Safran Foer, Joyce Carol Oates and Robert Pinksy, this seminal collection of stories revels in the dark connections between prosperity and desolation.

Book Description Akashic Books,U.S., United States, 2011. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 208 x 132 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. Oates s introduction to Akashic s noir volume dedicated to the Garden State, with its evocative definition of the genre, is alone worth the price of the book . . . Poems by C.K. Williams, Paul Muldoon, and others--plus photos by Gerald Slota--enhance this distinguished entry. -- Publishers Weekly It was inevitable that this fine noir series would reach New Jersey. It took longer than some readers might have wanted, but, oh boy, was it worth the wait . . . More than most of the entries in the series, this volume is about mood and atmosphere more than it is about plot and character . . . It should go without saying that regular readers of the noir series will seek this one out, but beyond that, the book also serves as a very good introduction to what is a popular but often misunderstood term and style of writing. -- Booklist, Starred Review A lovingly collected assortment of tales and poems that range from the disturbing to the darkly humorous. -- Shelf Awareness Featuring brand-new stories (and a few poems) by: Joyce Carol Oates, Jonathan Safran Foer, Robert Pinsky, Edmund White Michael Carroll, Richard Burgin, Paul Muldoon, Sheila Kohler, C.K. Williams, Gerald Stern, Lou Manfredo, S.A. Solomon, Bradford Morrow, Jonathan Santlofer, Jeffrey Ford, S.J. Rozan, Barry N. Malzberg Bill Pronzini, Hirsh Sawhney, and Robert Arellano. From the introduction by Joyce Carol Oates: . . . The most civilized and decent among us find that we are complicit with the most brutal murderers. We enter into literally unspeakable alliances--of which we dare not speak except through the obliquities and indirections of fiction, poetry, and visual art of the sort gathered here in New Jersey Noir.
