THE THIRD HILL NORTH OF TOWN
It’s hard to determine which genre Bly’s debut book falls in, yet it is clearly an exploration into mankind and human nature. Set against the backdrop of the socially tense 1960s, the characters in The Third Hill North of Town are rich, distinct and diverse. For fans of great literature, the camaraderie between the two young men feels very Tom Sawyer and Jim-like in context. The fresh and unique storyline takes many coincidental twists and turns throughout; however, it’s the explosive ending that may blindside and grip readers the most.
