Wayfaring Stranger: James Lee Burke

“Tough-guy writer with a sappy streak.”

That NYT review sums up Burke, one of America’s greatest living writers, perfectly.

I though I’d read all his stuff, came across this and mistook it for an earlier work I’d missed. It’s pretty new.

Here’s hoping Burke has a lot of writing left in him. Much as I love his Robicheaux work, I’m looking forward to even more of Billy Bob Holland and his ancestors.
