From the creation by way of Tayari Jones:

Atlanta itself is a criminal offense scene. in spite of everything, Georgia used to be based as a de facto penal colony and in 1864, Sherman burned the town to the floor. we would argue approximately no matter 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 thing that grows this is right now fertilized and corrupted by means of the past...

These tales don't inevitably agree to the conventional 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 question 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; maybe they hardly ever exist in any respect. Few undesirable deeds pass unrewarded, and reliable intentions usually are not 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 condominium. Pour your self a pitcher of candy tea, and enhance it with a slug of bourbon. positioned your toes up. take pleasure in those tales, and watch your back.
