Crooked Letter, Crooked Letter
Author Tom Franklin made his name with a collection of short stories called “Poaches.” His latest novel is a murder mystery that mines his Southern boyhood for material. Not only does “Crooked Letter, Crooked Letter” (Harper Perennial/2011) keep the reader enraptured with its well-paced crime story, it also explores truths about race relations and friendship in the modern, rural South.
