Before turning to crime. Melissa Ginsburg was a respectable poet who had attended the Iowa Writers’ Workshop and published two books of verse. This April, she publishes her first crime novel, Sunset City. The story is set in her hometown of Houston, Texas, and it involves murder, drugs, betrayal, secrets, and the miserable weather the city is known for. In other words — all the good stuff.
But Melissa has not rejected her poetic lineage. Claire Vaye Watkins, author of Gold Fame Citrus has this to say:
“I am positively agog at this dizzying, addictive novel. A poetic meditation draped in the cloak of noir, an elegy with the heart-pounding pace of a murder mystery. Sunset City is raw, tough, and relentlessly exquisite.”
