T.J. Forrester – Black Heart on the Appalachian Trail.


Black Heart on the Appalachian Trail – T.J. Forrester (2012, Simon & Schuster Paperbacks, New York)

Black Heart is a jittery, jarring, spliced-together series of connected vignettes about a bunch of hikers who test themselves and let all their demons hang out as they thru-hike the Appalachian Trail.  There are a few murders, but little mystery, and plenty of sex and violence and drugs.  Redemption is a big theme in Black Heart, and Forrester ultimately delivers it to some of the warped souls that walk the Trail.
