Book Nook: Donnybrook, by Frank Bill

May 1, 2013

Frank Bill writes tough, gritty fiction that is informed by his experiences living in southern Indiana. Economic hard times have taken their toll on that region. As the manufacturing base has declined some folks have out of desperation resorted to committing crimes. Bill's first book was "Crimes in Southern Indiana," a collection of short stories that showed that this author is a rising force. The man can really write.

His first novel, "Donnybrook," fulfills the promise of that first book. This new book surges with a savage adrenaline. It is the most violent story imaginable and it is thoroughly entertaining. In this interview Frank Bill talks about his craft and his outlook on life. We'll be hearing more from Frank Bill.
