About this title

Synopsis:

Spurred by a friend's death, Lew Griffin returns from a self-imposed exile to search for his late friend's runaway daughter and to face his troubled relationship with his own father.

From the Back Cover:

Lew Griffin has quit the detective business and withdrawn to the safety of his old home in New Orleans' Garden District, where he copes with his past by transforming it into fiction. Following the death of a close friend, he returns to the streets-- not only the urban ones he has conquered but also those of the rural South that he escaped long ago-- to search for the runaway daughter he didn't know that his friend had. Griffin discovers that we rarely know anyone, even those closest to us. And he now finds that he must also face two things he most fears: memories of his parents and his own relationship with his now-vanished son.
"Moth" is expansive, bursting with marvelous scenes and unforgettable characters, filled at once with the matter-of-fact violence of daily life and with redeeming human compassion.
Praise for "Moth"
"There is danger, violence, suspense; there are characters so vivid as to be documentaries in miniature and milieus as perceived by all the senses .... The reader has to hope the remarkable biography of Lew Griffin will continue."-- "Los Angeles Times"
"An intelligent, enigmatic book ... engrossing and disturbing."-- "The New York Times"
"Another walk on Louisiana's wild side ... even stronger than "The Long-Legged Fly.""-- "Kirkus Reviews"
James Sallis is a poet, music critic, biographer, and storyteller. His biography "Chester Himes: A Life" was published by Walker & Company in 2001. He lives in Phoenix, Arizona.
