Editorial Reviews


"Akashic Books has published more than 50 volumes of its 'Noir' anthologies, each set in a different city, from Manhattan to Manila. This month welcomes the release of Atlanta Noir, a collection of 14 short stories by mostly Southern writers, including locals Jim Grimsley and John Holman. Another notable contributor: the book’s editor, award-winning novelist and Spelman alum Tayari Jones. She calls Atlanta--with its gentility, urban grit, and history that ranges from stirring to grotesque--'the noirest town in the nation.'"
--Atlanta Magazine, Top Atlanta Event pick for August

"The book holds 14 chilling tales of urban grit and moral ambiguity, each one written by an author with an intimate knowledge of the city and edited by Jones, whose own writing appears in the collection...The range of stories provided in the collection provides an almost perfect snapshot of the city in which we live, written by people who know it best."
--Creative Loafing

"Atlanta is one of America's most dynamic and fastest growing cities, with an increasingly diverse population. This volume honors the city's transformation--albeit in a chilling manner--with a highly talented crew of 14 respected contributors who know the city inside and out, from its souls to its heart...Once again, Akashic shows us why it is king of noir and especially anthologies with such high-quality writers and storytellers. We've waited long for this beautiful collection of all things dark and murderous, but the wait was well worth it. Atlanta Noir could well turn out to be Akashic's best work to date."
--New York Journal of Books
