About the Author

Tim McLoughlin was born and raised in Brooklyn. His debut novel, Heart of the Old Country (Akashic), was hailed as reminiscent of James T. Farrell's Studs Lonigan and George Orwell's Down and Out in Paris. He was editor of Brooklyn Noir, first in the Akashic Noir Series, as well as Brooklyn Noir 2 and Brooklyn Noir 3.

Reviews

"You want real? Leave the white collar at home and come to Brooklyn. The stories in this astonishingly diverse collection will pull you out onto the street, maybe even rough you up a little. And you'll love it. Edgy, sly, and at times downright eye-popping, Brooklyn Noir takes you on an ultra-cool walking tour of NYC's hippest borough."
--Tim Cockey, author of Backstabber

"From the sentimental to the hard-edged, a collection as varied and spirited as the characters and neighborhoods it celebrates."
--Thomas H. Cook, author of The Chatham School Affair and Breakheart Hill

"For fans of noir, for fans of Brooklyn, for fans of just plain old great writing--this is the book for you, or, rather, I should say, you'se."
--Jonathan Ames, author of What's Not to Love? and The Extra Man

Praise for McLoughlin's Heart of the Old Country

"...cracks with the authenticity that only a writer with a perfect ear can accomplish."
--Bob Leuci, author of Blaze

"McLoughlin writes about South Brooklyn with a fidelity to people and place reminiscent of James T. Farrell's Studs Lonigan and George Orwell's Down and Out in Paris and London."
--Sidney Offit, author of Memoir of the Bookie's Son
