It's so good I'm reading it again. It's set in Mississippi. Has murder, suspense, an illicit love affair, and touches on race relations.

Woody Haut's Blog: Crooked Letter, Crooked Letter by Tom Franklin

woodyhaut.blogspot.com

The biography of a true Mississippi rascal. He was a hustler, a pimp, and ran business for organized crime but he was also a husband, father, and leader of change in 1960's Mississippi. The brother of Medgar Evers' life story is one of my all-time favorite reads. I highly recommend it.

This story resonated with me very deeply. Too deeply.

This book stayed with me long after I read it. Couldn't bear to watch the movie though I may rent it someday...
