From the creation by means of Tayari Jones:

Atlanta itself is a criminal offense scene. finally, Georgia was once based as a de facto penal colony and in 1864, Sherman burned the town to the floor. we would argue approximately even if the arson was once the crime or the reaction to the crime, yet this is often undeniable: Atlanta is a urban sewn from the ashes and every little thing that grows here's instantaneously fertilized and corrupted by way of the past...

These tales don't inevitably agree to the conventional expectancies of noir...However, all of them percentage the standard of disclosing the rot beneath the smell of magnolia and pine. Noir, in my view, is extra a question of tone than content material. the ethical universe of the tale is as major because the actual house. Noir is a realm the place the great men seldom win; might be they infrequently exist in any respect. Few undesirable deeds cross unrewarded, and solid 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 apartment. Pour your self a pitcher of candy tea, and enhance it with a slug of bourbon. placed your toes up. get pleasure from those tales, and watch your back.
