    Paperback ½ Night Dogs PDF/EPUB ☆ night download, dogs epub, Night Dogs eBookI first wrote a review of this novel over thirteen years ago on com I was a brand new police officer I had problems with the book Didn't like the protaganist or the portrayal of police work But then what did I know about police work? Well that answer is simple nothing Skip ahead to the present I recently re read it out of curiosity I discovered that this book is truthful than I realized Though he was only a cop for a few years I believe it was three years in the early seventies Anderson manages to capture the essence or truth that's an overused wordof police work I haven't been involved with any questionable shootings and I don't carry a throw away piece but the changes that a person goes through after a few years are accurate The anger the sense of isolation and disgust that one comes to feel towards the citizenry

    Paperback ½ Night Dogs PDF/EPUB ☆ night download, dogs epub, Night Dogs eBookBitter Truth There are a lot of reasons not to read Kent Anderson's Night Dogs Aging Viet Nam War protestors dusting off old placards and tired slogans to recycle for the War in Iraq will be infuriated with Anderson's laser focused skewering of the liberal mindset Those wishing to maintain a romantic view of an idyllic northwest paradise will risk having these illusions shattered by Anderson's Portland's mean streets of depravity and violence If you prefer neat little stories ending with the bad guys rightfully dispatched you'll find little redemption here And anyone with the slightest affection for dogs or kids will cringe in the raw reality of this unvarnished tale of a street cop's nightly grind in post Viet Nam America So while there are lots of reasons not to read Night Dogs you'd be missing a powerful example of American fiction at its best a gut wrenching and emotionally draining dissection of pop culture cleverly and brutally disguised as a c

    Paperback ½ Night Dogs PDF/EPUB ☆ night download, dogs epub, Night Dogs eBookAs James Crumley put it in the Forward and I surely can put no better there has never been a police novel like this The writing is as strong as the materialthe dialogue as solid as a brick through a plate glass window and the prose as sharply precise as a linoleum knife across a throat Night Dogs is not just a fine book It's an important bookA must read for anyone who is willing to meet a part of America that is so in our face but which we can and most often do prefer to ignore and yet a part which has all of our same aspirations and with which we share so many of shortcomings
