Boys from Biloxi

Boys from Biloxi

“Meandering narrative” was my first impression, and amusing, engaging, but seemingly sort of wandering around the old Gulf Coast.

The opening laconic pace, rather a relaxed reading settling into a narrative, not quite what I expected, but then, not having read a lot of Grisham early on, I’m not totally familiar with his canon, other than something-something southern, and legalese lawyer stuff. Southern Gothic in a more delicate manner?

Set in Biloxi, along the fabled and storied Gulf Coast. While there weren’t really any rum-runners, there very well could’ve been.

There’s an inter-generational sense, the idea that it is a sprawling epic, and yet, it’s still just a single, concise novel. Or as concise as that author will write.

Good book.
