The New Black, a neo noir anthology by Dark House Press, edited by Richard Thomas.

The New Black drew me in quickly and held my interest from cover to cover. Although I often read a few books at a time, mixing them up, I kept reaching for it. 

This is a boundary breaking anthology that hopefully gets the attention that it deserves- a book with the appeal of genre fiction, but the quality writing of literary fiction. Thomas shows us that literary writing style can compel a story along. The New Black also demonstrates some of the range possible with neo noir. The New Black reflects that genre writers can be literary and literary writers can work within a genre. Hemingway and Fitzgerald wrote to the popular culture and now are considered literary. To that end, The New Black takes us back a century and hopefully helps moves us forward in the next decade.
