Kim’s March Recommendation

Galveston by Nic Pizzolatto

galvestonKim says:  “Last winter I was riveted to the screen watching True Detective on HBO.  I am still waiting for the re-tooling of the series with a whole new cast of characters.  In the meantime, I found creator and writer Nic Pizzolatto’s first novel, Galveston.  Set in New Orleans and East Texas, the novel is populated with criminals and other broken characters.  Like he did in True Detective, the author pulls you into a dark world where goodness and compassion struggle to find a footing.  I read it in one long night.”
