"South, America," a new Southern noir crime novel by award-wining author Rod Davis, is now available. For information go to http://roddavisauthor.com/ . Davis is the recipient of the fiction award in the inaugural PEN Southwest Book Awards in 2005 for "Corina's Way" (NewSouth Books, 2003). The novel is described by Kirkus Reviews as “a spicy bouillabaisse, New Orleans-set, in the tradition of Flannery O’Connor or John Kennedy Toole: a welcome romp, told with traditional Southern charm.”
He also is author of "American Voudou: Journey into a Hidden World" (UNT Press, 1998, paperback, January 2000), a study of West African religion in the United States. It was selected as one of the “Exceptional Books of 1998” by Bookman Book Review Syndicate.
"Gritty Southern noir." That's what Dallas critic Si Dunn says about South, America in his new review on his blog "Books, Books and More (New) Books." Works great for me. You can find more at my author page, roddavis.author.com
