Fans of The Drive-By Trucker's Dirty South album ought to get a kick out of ENNIS SKINNER, a fallen Alabama football star recently sprung from prison after a ten-year stretch. All Ennis wants to do is do right, and take care of his ailing father, a one-time leading light of the Civil Rights movement. But Montgomery, Alabama is a town that doesn't forget -- or forgive easily.
In his debut, Dixie Noir (2009), Ennis is roped into looking for the damaged nineteen-year old daughter of the woman responsible for his downfall.
And I wasn't kidding about the Dirty South -- Ennis's South is a Confedate-flag wavin' stewpot of racism, meth, corruption, sweat, piss, jizz and blood -- and Dixie Noir may just mark the debut of a major new character.
Who says the North has all the fun?
