From the advent via Tayari Jones:

Atlanta itself is a criminal offense scene. in spite of everything, Georgia was once based as a de facto penal colony and in 1864, Sherman burned town to the floor. we'd argue approximately even 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 thing that grows here's right now fertilized and corrupted via the past...

These tales don't inevitably agree to the normal expectancies of noir...However, all of them percentage the standard of revealing the rot beneath the smell of magnolia and pine. Noir, for my part, is extra a query of tone than content material. the ethical universe of the tale is as major because the actual area. Noir is a realm the place the nice men seldom win; probably they not often exist in any respect. Few undesirable deeds cross unrewarded, and sturdy intentions should not 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 house. Pour your self a tumbler of candy tea, and enhance it with a slug of bourbon. positioned your ft up. take pleasure in those tales, and watch your back.
