Kem Nunn's The Dogs of Winter -- excellent surf-noir novel set on California's Lost Coast, now in stock at Main Street.

"The Dogs of Winter is a book of big, dark moods. It has about it an electric gloom, part of which has to do with crimes and obsessions, and part with the vivid portraits of the decaying reservations and lumber towns and the cold, cloudy, jagged coastal landscape of Northern California. But most of which has to do with the hard specificity and somber music of Nunn's prose."
