Saving Lives—and Houses—in Detroit

Frequent Rap Sheet contributor Steven Nester has a new review up this morning in January Magazine. The book under investigation: August Snow, by Stephen Mack Jones. Nester writes, in part:
Stephen Mack Jones is a poet and an award-winning playwright, which has served him well in writing August Snow. He’s able to channel an inner-Chandler on command, with off-hand hardness (“I might as well have been talking to a freshly cut slab of slaughterhouse beef”). But stylistically he’s his own man, as when he turns deceit into poetry: “If you’re gonna lie, go big and wear other people like camouflage.”
