Alan Trotter

Wed 2 Oct

In a hard-boiled city of crooks and rackets lurk a pair of toughs. They’re the kind of men who act without thinking. Until one night, over poker, they encounter a pulp writer with ideas and an unscrupulous private eye. Part Chandler, part Italo Calvino, Alan Trotter’s brilliant debut novel opens up like a set of Russian dolls. “Pulp fiction made intelligent,” Sunday Telegraph. [506]
