Tom Franklin’s new novel Crooked Letter, Crooked Letter introduced me to a character that I will always remember, Larry Ott.  I think the thing that defines a great book for me is a character (or characters) that I care about.  If a book doesn’t have a character in it that I give a damn about, I’m not going to give a damn about the book.  Crooked Letter, Crooked Letter made me care about Larry Ott.  It’s one of those books that made me want to read it again as soon as I finished.
