Heaven, My Home is a propulsive and compelling novel, worthy of comparisons to Walter Mosley. The story whips along towards a resolution so neat and tidy that it skates very close to cliche, but Locke's exploration of Matthews's predicament digs deep into the tension between "the impulse to police crimes against black life and to protect black life from police". It is buttressed by passages of gorgeous lyricism, with loving, elegiac evocations of Texas set alongside extended meditations on displacement, reconciliation and forgiveness, and on what "home" means in a place where it's an idea you can't "exactly touch".
In remote rural Texas, the descendants of freed slaves share their land with some of the state's last Native Americans.
Attica Locke's magnificent new novel, Heaven, My Home, is set on the side of a lake where this small community struggles to survive, encroached on by angry white men who deal in drugs and stolen goods. Into this unstable situation comes Darren Matthews, a Texas Ranger from Houston sent to investigate the disappearance of a nine-year-old white boy.

The making of a bestseller: the father, the money and the agent
Around midnight a chubby little girl showed up in her nightgown. Seemed it happened pretty often. An iPod played into an amplifier, a huge pot spit out seafood smells.
And not one person pulled for Ole Miss. Bean had her first crawfish, I sang a bad rendition of Little Big Town, our short hair waved to buzz cuts and bump-its.
My Night in Redneck Heaven
Redneck Hell, came the hoots as a rack ripped open. We were stuffed and happy in our yoga pants and thrift store sweaters. Morning brought biscuits, bacon, and church. I grew up in a house of hopeful pagans, Bean turned Unitarian at Back in the pickup, we rattled down the road to a one-room building, with a basement for events.
