Author(s): Tom Drury
Description: In its tender, cool irony, "The Driftless Area" recalls the best of neonoir, and its cast of bona fide small-town eccentrics adrift in the American Midwest makes for a deeply pleasurable read from a beloved author.
Review: "ÝA moody and mysterious tale. Over the course of four original novels, Drury has forged an entrancing form of mldwestern paranormal noir. Deadpan wit, cosmic melancholy, characters both ethereal and down and dirty, predicaments a Beckett character would accept as inevitable, and a porous divide between the living and the dead add up to a delectably unnerving outlaw fairy tale." -- Donna Seaman
