 About the Book 

ALA Notable Book- Mississippi Arts and Letters Fiction Award. Lewis Nordans remarkable third novel, THE SHARPSHOOTER BLUES, is in part a meditation on Americas love affair with blue-steel barrels and soft-tip bullets, and in part a look at theMoreALA Notable Book- Mississippi Arts and Letters Fiction Award. Lewis Nordans remarkable third novel, THE SHARPSHOOTER BLUES, is in part a meditation on Americas love affair with blue-steel barrels and soft-tip bullets, and in part a look at the violence and loss that ensue when the guns come out to play one day in a small town. Just as his award-winning WOF WHISTLE illuminated the complexity of racism, Nordans new novel shines the brilliant flash of gunfire on love--between fathers and sons, between husbands and wives, between gay lovers, and between friends. At its heart is Hydro Raney, a boy whos never grown up, a boy who wouldnt hurt a soul. In THE SHARPSHOOTER BLUES, Nordan once again makes us laugh- then our helpless laughter turns first into weeping and then into wonder. A comedy at least half as divine--and dark--as Dantes own . . . a flat-out tour de force.--Lee K. Abbott, Miami Herald- This is not just a good book, this is a marvelous book.-The Village Voice.
