Crooked Letter, Crooked Letter by Tom Franklin

Tom Franklins extraordinary talent has been hailed by the leading lights of contemporary literaturePhilip Roth, Richard Ford, Lee Smith, and Dennis Lehane. Reviewers have called his fiction ingenious (USA Today) and compulsively readable (Memphis Commercial Appeal). His narrative power and flair for character-ization have been compared to the likes of Harper Lee, Flannery OConnor, Elmore Leonard, and Cormac McCarthy. Now the Edgar Award-winning author returns with his most accomplished and resonant novel so faran atmospheric drama set in rural Mississippi. In the late 1970s, Larry Ott and Silas 32 Jones were boyhood pals. Their worlds were as different as night and day: Larry, the child of lower-middle-class white parents, and Silas, the son of a poor, single black mother. Yet for a few months the boys stepped outside of their circumstances and shared a special bond. But then tragedy struck: Larry took a girl on a date to a drive-in movie, and she was never heard from again. She was never found and Larry never confessed, but all eyes rested on him as the culprit. The incident shook the countyand perhaps Silas most of all. His friendship with Larry was broken, and then Silas left town.
