The Sharpshooter BluesLluminated the complexity of racism Nordan’s new novel shines the brilliant flash of gunfire on love between fathers and sons between husbands and wives between gay lovers and between friends At its heart is Hydro Raney a boy who’s never grown up a boy who wouldn’t hurt a soul In The Sharpshooter Blue. A mad mad world one that Nordan creates in the same lightning storm as Wolf Whistle Again nothing about this should work and again so help me it does It’s good and evil it’s love and tragedy it’s madness and grace “It might just be a story” as the sweet doomed Hydro muses “like so much else in the world”But in Arrow Catcher Mississippi as everywhere “As long as there was a story that’s all that really mattered” Hydro fell in love with the sharpshooter He didn’t love him as much as he loved his daddy who shot the refrigerator for love and a memory of the heart; and Hydro’s bones didn’t ache for him the way they ached for his mama who he never knew a long time gone; and he didn’t even love him as much as he loved Louis the strange child who shared Wonder Woman and Green Hornet— but you couldn’t watch anything as beautiful as two melons busting open and slick seeds blowing out into a sugarcane field without falling in love

I am feeling a 4367 but I am going to round this up because I don't think someone as dense as I should be responsible for bringing this novel's rating down It is good if occasionally disorienting and extremely funny in parts Other parts gut you My only real uip is how often the narrator hops from one head to the next but the book has no clear protagonist as far as the way I understood it and that is an interesting task in and of itself It's also weird as all hell and veers into the fantastical at times

Lewis Nordan’s remarkable third novel The Sharpshooter Blues is in part a meditation on America’s love affair with blue steel barrels and soft tip bullets and in part a look at the violence and loss that ensue when the guns come out to play one day in a small town Just as his award winning Wolf Whistle i. A good southern writer however I didn't like Nordan as well as Larry Brown Tom Franklin Ron Rash or William Gay I liked SHARPSHOOTER BLUES alright but not enough to revisit the book
