American Rust, Philipp Meyer

Two young 20 years olds in rural USA get involved in a murder of a homeless man in their dying ex-steel mill town.  Told from the viewpoint of the two men and several other characters it is an interesting tale but very bleak and a sad reality for much of our country.  It is a well written novel told in an interesting stream of consciousness style.  The author has a more recent novel just published that looks good as well.

PJH Rating: ****
