    PaperbackÅ Gravesend ePUB ñ gravesend mobile, Gravesend KindleIf you live in a neighborhood called Gravesend you should probably expect things to be kind of depressing but damnRay Boy Calabrese is being released from prison after sixteen years for causing the death of Conway’s brother and Conway wants revenge Meanwhile Conway’s old school classmate Alessandra has returned home from LA following the death of her mother and Ray Boy’s nephew Eugene has heard all the stories about his bad ass uncle and dreams of being a neighborhood legend like him I’d read William Boyle’s excellent The Lonely Witness without realizing that it’s a follow up novel to this one and while they can be read as self contained stories I wish I’d read this first because it does add some layers to it Better late than never though and this one is just as good maybe even better in some ways than that oneThis isn’t the kind of crime novel that the set up makes it

    PaperbackÅ Gravesend ePUB ñ gravesend mobile, Gravesend Kindle“Gravesend” byWilliam BoyleIs a work of neo noir capturing the grit and desperation of a neighborhood in flux and spotlighting the neighbors who find themselves caught up in the crimes of the pastBoyle subverts our expectations; this is no garden variety revenge story The characters deal with grief in ways that will be familiar only to those who have faced it firsthand There’s a lot going on The killer was the paragon of neighborhood manhood King Guido and knew these guys worshiped and hated them then laughed at them when they appeared on Jersey Shore in caricature They had a power we couldn’t understand their looks and bravado defying teachers and police who wielded their authority on commoners such as usThe luster uickl

    PaperbackÅ Gravesend ePUB ñ gravesend mobile, Gravesend KindleGravesend is a neighborhood in Brooklyn It is also describes the modern day noir novel that Boyle has dropped on us It is a neighborhood where people are stuck in the past unable to move forward slowly dying trapped in lives that are going nowhere It is not a caper novel of a character study not of one character but of a series of characters Most of the main characters never left home or if they did they are back in their childhood bedrooms with their widowed parents downstairs stuck and going nowhere fast Conway is 29 works at the Rite Aid lives at home with dad fantasizes about girls he sat behind in high s

    PaperbackÅ Gravesend ePUB ñ gravesend mobile, Gravesend KindleI've heard many people refer to New York City as a small town disguised as a big city This novel really touches on that theme as we watch our main characters constantly circle each other as they all navigate their Brooklyn neighborhood and try not to get sucked under by it's pull of family and past sins The novel has the soul of Pelecanos's best but with the nihilism of David Goodis at his most downhearted It's definitely one of the depressing novels I've read with some scenes coming close to making me cry because of the sheer disappointment and desperation that the characters feel as well as the actions they take to escape their situations It's a violent book but not in a guns blood and guts kind of a way but it's an emotional violence that turned out to be even affecting and re

    PaperbackÅ Gravesend ePUB ñ gravesend mobile, Gravesend KindleWilliam Boyle has written a brilliant debut novel packed full of gritty characters struggling to make a living in the roughed up neighborhood of Gravesend until the only choice left is tragedy This is a working class novel in the way that Fat City is a working class novel or Frozen River is a working class film Actresses can’t find films to act in Kids make drops for the mob Grown men ring the cash register in Rite Aid The daily grind Boyle describes is endless You tend bar You run numbers You do anything to make a life

    PaperbackÅ Gravesend ePUB ñ gravesend mobile, Gravesend KindleSoooI don't write a lot of reviews I am not literary literate just a guy who likes to read But I felt compelled to jot down a few lines after finishing this book First and foremost I thank Megan Abbott for introducing me to Mr Boyle's work What I found amazing about this book beyond enjoying the author's style and cadence was the care taken with the details and backstory that helped the reader really get a sense of Conway Stephanie and Alessandra in particular At several points in the book I just had to pause to appreciate what Boyle did in terms of building his characters where I did not expect it but nonetheless wholly appreciated it A great read that evoked memories of growing up during the same time per
