The Bayou Trilogy: Under the Bright Lights, Muscle for the Wing, and the Ones You Do
Author
Daniel Woodrell
ISBN
9780316133654
A hard-hitting, critically acclaimed trilogy of crime novels from an author about whom New York magazine has written, "What people say about Cormac McCarthy . . . goes double for Woodrell]. Possibly more." In the parish of St. Bruno, sex is easy, corruption festers, and double-dealing is a way of life. Rene Shade is an uncompromising detective swimming in a sea of filth. As Shade takes on hit men, porn kings, a gang of ex-cons, and the ghosts of his own checkered past, Woodrell's three seminal novels pit long-entrenched criminals against the hard line of the law, brother against brother, and two vastly different sons against a long-absent father. The Bayou Trilogy highlights the origins of a one-of-a-kind author, a writer who for over two decades has created an indelible representation of the shadows of the rural American experience and has steadily built a devoted following among crime fiction aficionados and esteemed literary critics alike.Binding Type: PaperbackAuthor: Daniel WoodrellPublisher: Mulholland BooksPublished: 04/28/2011ISBN: 9780316133654Pages: 496Weight: 1.20lbsSize: 9.10h x 5.90w x 1.30dReview Citations: Publishers Weekly 02/28/2011Library Journal 11/15/2010 pg. 46Library Journal Prepub Alert 11/15/2010 pg. 46
