Inhaltsangabe: Dewy, a black man, and his partner, Gunnar, a white Wisconsin farmboy, spend their time working as ""repo men"" in a tough inner-city neighborhood, until an unresponsive customer triggers a tragedy that sends Gunnar's life hurtling out of control. A first novel. $30,000 ad/promo.
Rezension: This superb first novel, beautifully written in minor keys that reveal the omnipresent sadness of narrator Gunnar Lund, is set on the cash-strapped streets of a rough section of Columbus, Ohio. Gunnar is an alien from Wisconsin, and has a job as a bill collector and repo man for a company that rents home appliances; he's also a white man moving through a largely African American world. Well-told, stark, gritty and realistic, The Right Man for the Job is also an extremely successful study of race in this country. It puts on no sociological airs; it simply talks honestly about white people and black people, and how they treat each other.
