IPPY AWARD WINNING NOVELIST DARDEN NORTH’S SOUTHERN GOTHIC THRILLER “WIGGLE ROOM” RETURNS
Can medical thrillers fit hand-in-surgical glove in the Southern Gothic literary genre? They can if the author is IPPY Award winning novelist, Darden North. North’s mystery and thriller novels – including Points of Origin, Wiggle Room, Fresh Frozen, House Call, and The 5 Manners of Death – are all steeped in suspense, local Southern color, and conflicted characters struggling to make sense of a world that has moved on without them. The novels are representative of a new Southern archetype and stream of consciousness not so much grounded in dusty ignorance, but in bright intelligence from all races and genders.
