Penguin Publishing Group and David Joy for an ARC to read and review I m between 4 and 45 starsAfter reading David Joy s newest novel I ve come to the conclusion that writers like him and Michael Farris Smitheserve their own sub genre of fiction one that I ll call bleak tionThis sub genre would contain beautifully written books in which a feeling of Therapy of Love despair oroom is uite pervasive and you know that something monumentally well bleak is going to happen See Joy s The Weight of This World or Smith s Desperation Road or The Fighter I Democratic Phoenix: Reinventing Political Activism don t mean this in aisparaging way but you shouldn t read these novels in search of a belly laughIn the latest addition to the world of bleak tion The Line That Held Us Darl Moody

Social Rebellion disappearance sets him on a collision course with Darl and Calvin and threatens to upend all of their lives Dwayne believes in an eye for an eye and he will exact his revenge no matter how many people get hurt in the processNeedless to say this isn t a happy read but it is powerful even gut wrenching at times and you probably can predict how the story will unfold But Joy is an exceptional storyteller and even the commonplace becomes fascinating when seen through his lens He so accurately evokes the mounting sense ofread the fear the unhingedness that his characters feel
