Bluesman: Books 1 and 2

EW's GRADE
B+

Details Writer: Rob Vollmar; Genre: Fiction; Publisher: NBM

It's a Throwback To...
The Jim Crow era in the grim, rural South.
The Setup
Lem Taylor treks toward Memphis to a recording session and, perhaps, a better life. His obstacles (and there are plenty) have a near-mythic ring.
A Timeless Tale?
Writer Rob Vollmar imagines a place rich in meaning and menace; Pablo G. Callejo's expressive B&W images give it vibrancy.
