Recently my husband and I saw the movie Winter’s Bone on DVD. At the end of this movie I saw that it was based on a book by Daniel Woodrell. He wrote one of my favorite books Tomato Red. Mr. Woodrell is writing what can only be described as Southern noir– but even darker than noir. The movie perfectly captured this immersion into a different world as does Tomato Red. Highly recommended but maybe not for the Holiday season.
