"A terrific Technicolor Noir that lives and breathes in the period. If I hadn't been told, I would've thought I was reading a lost paperback classic from sixty years ago. Clever, literate, and fun, Rook is right down my dark alley."

—Ace Atkins
New York Times Bestselling author of The Revelators and The Heathens



​"Part Richard Russo, part Bruce Springsteen, part OTB parlors and Cutlass Supremes, Eoannou's debut collection, Muscle Cars, is all--all--heart. These are tough, ruminative, cunning and tough--did I say tough?--stories of people trying to make it, one way and another, for better and worse. A fine first collection, and I look forward to the next.​​​​​​"
