Talking Location With author Leigh Russell – YORK
New Jersey Noir
Location(s): New Jersey
Genre(s): Crime, Short Stories
Under the editorship of Joyce Carol Oates, New Jersey may be the sixth smallest US state, but it packs in the most murderous American city and is considered to be, on a square by square mile basis, the most corrupt. A maze of overlapping and competing municipalities, New Jersey will always provide rich opportunities for political entrenchment, deal making and outright thievery. Featuring contributions from a sparkling list of authors including Jonathan Safran Foer, Joyce Carol Oates and Robert Pinksy, this seminal collection of stories revels in the dark connections between prosperity and desolation.
