    Description

    Atlanta itself is a crime scene. After all, Georgia was founded as a de facto penal colony, and in 1864, Sherman burned the city to the ground. We might argue about whether the arson was the crime or the response to the crime, but this is indisputable: Atlanta is a city sewn from the ashes, and everything that grows here is at once fertilized and corrupted by the past.

    These stories do not necessarily conform to the traditional expectations of noir. However, they all share the quality of exposing the rot underneath the scent of magnolia and pine. Noir, in my opinion, is more a question of tone than content. The moral universe of the story is as significant as the physical space. Noir is a realm where the good guys seldom win; perhaps they hardly exist at all. Few bad deeds go unrewarded, and good intentions are not the road to hell but are hell itself. 

    Welcome to Atlanta Noir. Come sit on the veranda or the terrace of a high-rise condo. Pour yourself a glass of sweet tea, and fortify it with a slug of bourbon. Put your feet up. Enjoy these stories, and watch your back.

    Contains mature themes.

    excellent read/listen

    I love collections & short stories & this book did not disappoint. Each story captivated me. it took me a week to listen to the entire book, which is fast for me. I cannot wait for another like it by these talented African American authors.

    Pure Atlanta With a Noir Feel

    This is a great collection of short stories that each have a noir feel. All of these stories go well together. Some of the stories are not written in the traditional noir style. The performances by Ron Butler and Bhani Turpin are great. I would recommend Atlanta Noir to anyone who loves the city of Atlanta with all of its charm, grit, and diversity. #Redemption #ShortStories #Atlanta #Noir #Environmental #Clever #Creepy #Dark #Gritty #Mindbending #Provocative #Quirky #Suspenseful #TheOutsider #NoHeroes #Fatalism #CityStreets #Friends #PastMeetsPresent #SelfDiscovery #Tagsgiving . #Sweepstakes

    I Was Not a Fan...

    First off, I'll admit that I wasn't familiar with the Noir genre before I began listening. So I wasn't really sure what to expect. Unfortunately, I
    was deeply disappointed by this medley of short stories. It seemed at times...inauthentic. As if some of the authors were straining to write from a perspective they knew nothing about. Then there were other stories that were just so far fetched that I had to google what Noir was, as to determine whether it was a form of Sci-Fi. Now that I know it isn't, I really don't know what to think about this collection of stories. They just weren't cohesive, and didn't blend together well at all.
    Some of them were ok, while there were others I struggled to get through. Towards the end of the book, I gave up and couldn't force myself to listen any further. I acknowledge the effort that went into this, but I wasn't a fan.

    Struggled to finish this book. This was a waste mostly except for one or two stories.

    True Atlanta !

    A great listen with multiple vignettes, each of which seems to ring true for Atlanta. very entertaining.
