Acts of Encouragement

Several weeks back, i was sitting w/ ed over a pint at the Irish Exit, we were in accord per our appreciation of the film Winter's Bone. Ed mentioned that the film was based on a novel by an author, daniel woodrell, who was rather prolific in detailing the exigencies of Ozark noir. we agreed that we should attend to such whenever possible. Before bed, I read 60 pages of Give Us A Kiss: A Country Noir and while I found the dialogue delightful, it is hampered by the snares and structure of its genre.
