When he befriends a gun-toting student and a pretty coed moves in, an alcoholic, self-loathing, washed-up novelist thinks maybe he's found a little redemption in teaching at a small-town community college. With his signature rasp and a tone of world-weary honesty, narrator Joe Barrett finds every possible shade of gray in this contemporary noir. As the story bears down in the final chapters, Barrett is right there with every icy emotion from dumb surprise to abject fear to feral self-preservation. John Keating adds a tough Irish burr to the reading of the novel-within-the-novel. It's no wonder this audiobook--riveting and disturbing--won a 2013 Audie Award for best original work.
