Join us for a Community Wide Read bood discussion.

 

Phenix City, Alabama, from its founding during the Civil War, has been the dirty, not-so-little secret of the South. It is a riverside no-man's land, a place where a blind eye has historically been turned to vice of every sort, including prostitution, gambling, and even murder. Atkins shows us Phenix City in its 1950s hey-day, where a battle is building between a handful of decent citizens and the underworld willing to do anything to maintain their control. Atkins draws from the worlds of pulp and Faulkner, using characters from the town's true history to tell a story of the best and worst of morality, and the ambiguity in between.
