Book Review – Black Gypsies (2022) by Grant Wamack [Dead End Follies]

I know next to nothing about Chicago. I can name all the sports teams that are based there. I also know about deep dish pizza and Al Capone, but that's it. It's as much of an American myth as it is a real place for me. It's also a character in Grant Wamack's short novel Black Gypsies. While I don't know the exact degree of realism Wamack's novel entails (because who fucking cares about realism when you're writing fiction?), but it painted an intoxicating portrait of a brutal and mysterious place that eats people's souls.
