    One thought on “New Haven Noir”

    1. Posted my review today -- publication day!Bottom line: A strong and highly enjoyable collection of diverse noir stories that truly give the reader a vibe for the City of New Haven. Get it for yourself or for the Yalie in your life.Read my full review on my blog: wildmoobooks/2017/08/03/n

    2. From alachic series. Very nice short stories of intrigue, mystery and deathly murder. One overarching theme is everybody makes fun of Yale

    3. Do you know someone heading off to Yale for school? A proud parent of a soon-to-be Yalie? Could their be a more delicious gift than the newest armchair anthology from the Akashic Noir series of geographically-organized noir short stories, New Haven Noir. This collection is by Amy Bloom who successfully gathered fifteen stories from New Haven past, present, and future with a noir sensibility.On of the most innovative stories was “Spring Break” by John Crowley. It takes place in the future wit [...]

    4. I lived in New Haven for a number of years, downtown, in a high-rise between Yale's campus and Yale -New Haven Hospital. I always suspected NH to be a noir-ish town and the collection of short stories by New Haven-affiliated writers proves it beyond the shadow of a doubt. I like to read material that is based on real physical locations, and everyone of these 15 stories is noir from start-to-finish and is set in a real place in New Haven, for example: East Rock, Dwight, Beinecke Library, Wooster [...]

    5. Of the dozen or so Akashic Noir collections I've read, I think this one did the best job of choosing stories that give someone unfamiliar with the city and state a good feel for the layout, politics, racial splits, etc. of the area. It probably helps that at least five of the contributors are either associated with Yale right now or have been so associated in the past. The usual fifteen stories, divided into three sections of five stories each, come from eight female contributors and seven male [...]

    6. As with most anthologies, I enjoyed some stories in this collection more than others. While this was not my favorite of the Noir series, there are some definite gems here.All the authors do a great job of putting us in New Haven, Connecticut. We see the working class against the backdrop of Yale and academia. Overall, I think this collection leans more into literary fiction than the noir genre it is supposed to be. Some stories, for me, miss the noir feel completely. A few have almost a pompous [...]

    7. Having spent many hours in the creepy stacks of Sterling Library at Yale, I had to laugh out loud at John Crowley's Poe-ish tale, "Spring Break". I liked the way he wrote it, in a kind of texting shorthand which made the characters real and likable.Another favorite story was "The Gauntlet", about the seemingly clueless Nebraska farm boy Yalie living on Edgewood Ave. in the 70's. Hirsh Sawhney's "A Woe for Every Season" reflects the New Haven of today as well as yesterday, the town/gown divide, a [...]

    8. NEW HAVEN NOIR, edited by Amy Bloom, is one of the newest offerings in Akashic Books’s noir series. I am ‘hooked’ on these noir titles and am very lucky to have been sent many of the titles to read and review. Each title has its own ‘flavor and texture’ and provides a decidedly untourist-like glimpse into locations around the US and the world.Every title contains an introduction by the editor; a map of the area with story locations marked by body silhouettes; author/contributor informa [...]

    9. I visited my childhood home of New Haven, CT with my brother for his 60th bday. A trip down memory lane . . . the Victorian Queen Anne we grew up in near East Rock Park, our air bnb on all-black Dixwell Avenue, the fancy-dress Shubert Theater on College, the old fake-gothic Yale buildings, the rusted-out Winchester arms factory, Pepe's Italian Pizza on Wooster Square . . . So this little book of detective stories, each set in one part of the city, was perfect. And who doesn't love Amy Bloom's wo [...]

    10. I have to start off with the note, I don't typically care for short stories, that being said my introduction to New Haven Noir, Edited by Amy Bloom totally brought me around. All of the stories are based in or around New Haven and generally bringing in Yale, and obviously most embark on the cynical or seamy side of life. A few of my favorites; a story involving a homeless man at Union Station and a man in a beautiful dark blue cashmere coat and then comes body parts in Crossing Harry by Chris Kn [...]

    11. Thank you Akashic Books for sending me an ARC of New Haven Noir! I thoroughly enjoyed the stories in this collection! They were diverse and each one had its own unique flavor. They were deliciously creepy and definitely kept me guessing. Highly recommend!

    12. Anthologies are usually hit and miss. Akashic's Noir anthologies are usually more hit than miss. Same is the case in New Haven Noir. I've never been to New Haven, or anywhere close to it, but the stories did a really good job at making me feel like I was transported there. As with all anthologies, there are some great, some okay, some awful, but New Haven Noir has more of the great, and less of the okay and awful stories.

    13. I chose to read this book because I grew up in New Haven and it was lovely to see my city represented in literature. Some of the stories were hit or miss but I still enjoyed it
