No feature week would be complete without reading recommendations. I was specifically looking for historical fiction - as I am sure that there are a lot of books set during Prohibition. Here were a few that I have found.
The Hot Kid by Elmore Leonard (**** see review)
The Moonshine War by Elmore Leonard
Billy Bathgate by E. L. Doctorow
The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald (**** read this in 2009)
Black Duck by Janet Taylor Lisle (YA fiction)
Whiskey River by Loren D Estleman
Winds of Change Series by Julie Lessman (particularly book 3, which is a work in progress as of the date of this article)
The Songwriter by Beatrice Colin
The Thin Man by Dashiell Hammett
The Wettest Country in the World by Matt Bondurant
Any others that you can think of? Please drop me your suggestions and I will add them to the list!
