From the creation through Tayari Jones:

Atlanta itself is a criminal offense scene. finally, Georgia used to be based as a de facto penal colony and in 1864, Sherman burned town to the floor. we would argue approximately no matter if the arson used to be the crime or the reaction to the crime, yet this can be undeniable: Atlanta is a urban sewn from the ashes and every little thing that grows here's instantly fertilized and corrupted by means of the past...

These tales don't inevitably comply with the normal expectancies of noir...However, all of them proportion the standard of disclosing 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 great men seldom win; possibly they infrequently exist in any respect. Few undesirable deeds move unrewarded, and sturdy intentions aren't the line to hell, yet are hell itself...Welcome to Atlanta Noir. Come take a seat at the veranda, or the terrace of a high-rise residence. Pour your self a tumbler of candy tea, and improve it with a slug of bourbon. placed your toes up. take pleasure in those tales, and watch your back.
