Not For Nothing (Stephen Graham Jones)

20140803-102158-37318508.jpgI’m beginning to think Stephen Graham Jones is a literary chameleon. Not for Nothing is an interesting read that will carry you along so quickly you won’t want to set the book down. (The same can be said for every book of his I’ve read so far.) The characters are interesting and Jones deftly writes up such a tangled web of interactions that this reader was 100% captivated by the mystery he’d created. On top of the characters, the setting plays a prominent role in the book. The small town Texas setting is one of the most vivid characters in the book, and the dusty town in a state of decline feels so vivid in this Great Recession moment of US history. I’d write more, but I really have to start my next SGJ book….
