An astonishing, stimulating, and quite quite wonderful novel based on the life of the indomitable Mazie Phillips who lived in New York through some of the most interesting times of the first part of the 20th century. With a fictional mix of diaries, recounting of family history and an unpublished autobiography, this has an almost documentary feel to it; it is quite matter of fact, which cleverly emphasises the emotion and feeling behind the written word. There is a stark rawness to this novel, it feels as though the author has seen a truth, felt a connection to Mazie and born witness to her audacious individuality. In this interesting, clever read, Attenberg takes a fictional peek at the woman behind the celebrity, in all her gutsy, passionate, courageous glory. ~ Liz Robinson
A Maxim Jakubowski selected title. Carlotto is one of Italian crime fiction's best exponents of noir and the dark heart of things. No surprise as he once spent time in jail as a result of a false conviction after a lengthy period on the run. In his new novel, he unites in opposition the main characters of his two series, respectively outlaw avenger Marco Buratti, aka the Alligator and the evil master criminal and mysoginist Giorgo Pellegrini. Set in Veneto region of Padua, the story is triggered by the disappearance of a suburban husband, whose life wasn't quite what it first appears and brings along the Alligator and his colourful sidekicks onto the case. An instance of criminals in pursuit of criminals, this is a shaded caper and an earnest investigation into the nature of evil that reads like a runaway train, and confirms Carlotto as equal to any of the English-writing czars of noir. ~ Maxim Jakubowski
