I just finished reading "The Outlaw Album", a short story collection by Daniel Woodrell and loved it. Some stories worked better than others, but I was floored by a particularly gruesome account of a civil war veteran and his introspection as an elderly man. I saw the film based on Winter's Bone and also the recent film Lawless (a story that happened right down the road from me) and just started digging in to Cormac McCarthy's "Blood Meridian". I think I'm in love with the country noir genre and have even started dabbling with some short stories of my own. Wondering if anyone else has been enjoying the genre and what are some recommended reads?
