Heart of the Old Country
"Part coming-of-age story, part thriller, it's got all the ingredients for what may be a whole new genre."--"Entertainment Weekly"
"McLoughlin in his first novel easily ranks with Richard Price."--"Penthouse"
Based on "Heart of the Old Country," "The Narrows" is now a major motion picture starring Kevin Zegers, Vincent D'Onofrio, Sofia Bush, and Eddie Cahill. This is not the Brooklyn of Spike Lee or Matty Rich, but a counterpoint, where the hangers-on--those left behind in the white flight to the suburbs--continue to "do business" while defending their shrinking borders.
Tim McLoughlin is the editor of the multiple award-winning anthology "Brooklyn Noir" and its companion volumes. His work has been included in "The Best American Mystery Stories." He lives in Brooklyn.
