Griftin' The Night Away

The Grifters is a problematic read. For the most part it's a fantastic tale of dishonesty and genetics but there are several moments in the final third that don't seem to ring true. Thompson has a way of writing that's incredibly natural and effortless but somehow the narrative feels a little forced post San Diego. Still as beautifully bitter as you'd expect from JT.
