Motherless Brooklyn: a Novel
2 journalers for this copy...
Lionel becomes known as 'Crazyman' to the neighborhood, and 'Freakshow' to his fellow Minna Men due to his Tourette's Syndrome. When Frank Minna is murdered, it's now up to Lionel to discover what happened.
Ambitious attempt at a 'noir' style hard-boiled detective story. Lionel's voice is authentic and lovely. My only problem was when the author would try to have Lionel's tics and verbal tour-de-forces blind you to the gaps in the story of following a trail to the killer. It doesn't always work, but you are rooting so hard for Lionel, you don't really care.
Fly far little book!
