Review: A SWOLLEN RED SUN by Matthew McBride
Review: A SWOLLEN RED SUN by Matthew McBride A long, close-up look at the very gritty underbelly of low-life crime in the Great Plains, couched in what has to be the most lyrical, poetic, sense-intriguing prose-poetry. I would never want to live the lives some of these characters do--never want the dangers, the crime, the temptations; but, oh, to live in these utterly gorgeous surrounds! Crime just doesn't seem quite like this, in the streets of New York City nor L.A., Detroit, Chicago, nor Atlanta. But human nature basically remains the same. This is a powerfully impacting story.
