Country Noir As a Geographical Subgenre in Fiction by Kristan

I have a “thing” for maps. Somehow, this transpired while working the library stacks as a maintenance shelver in non-fiction. I know the collection quite well. I LOVE the travel section and that’s where it all started, my love of maps. Then, gradually, I made it to the third floor fiction to “maintain” the tall tales of woe, love, mystery, sci-fi and westerns. Eventually, I came across a book titled Tomato Red , written by Daniel Woodrell.
