What makes noir noir? In three parts, Ken Bruen invites the reader into an examination of that question. Bruen begins with an offering of original short fiction that are brilliant examples of the best of the best of the art of noir. The stories here are profoundly dark, lit from time to time by flashes of humor, and always guided by the need to mete out just deserts. The second part, through non-fiction, is Bruen's profoundly personal journey, as he says, out of darkness, followed by a discussion of work by authors he admires. For dessert, the reader is treated to "Literary Heroine," a stage poem that is, in Bruen's words, "a potpourri of literary gossip and tid-bits of the most basic slime." That is, deliciously deep and dark, as is the whole of The Galway Reflections. Enjoy every delicious, wicked word. Signed Hardcover, $45.00
