  • Crooked Letter, Crooked Letter: A Journey through the Cultural Landscape of Mississippi

    Donnerstag, 18.04.2024 - 16:00 Uhr

Zur Vorbereitung des Englisch-Abiturs

Talk by Jessica Strain, d.a.i. Tübingen. Chabot, a quiet rural town in Mississippi, becomes the site of a mysterious murder. The “gentle weirdo” Larry Ott is quickly determined to be the suspect, but did he commit the crime? Crooked Letter, Crooked Letter, written by Tom Franklin, is more than just a crime novel. This talk will focus on key issues such as race and racism, identity, coming-of-age, poverty and family relations, and the ambiguity of belonging, especially concerning Larry and Silas, two of the novel's main characters.
