Recommended Reading

Am currently reading, and enjoying:

New Jersey Noir, edited by Joyce Carol Oates (softcover, 2011).

The book (it is largely a collection of short fiction, yet there is poetry, as well) is published by Akashic Books. Akashic has published a great many titles in its geography-specific noir series. I'd previously read (and enjoyed) Philadelphia Noir, edited by Carlin Romano. Some of the other locales featured in the series are Haiti,  Brooklyn, Dublin, Cape Cod, Las Vegas, Boston, San Francisco, New Orleans, Baltimore, and Mexico City.
