Jack Lawson grew up in North Carolina in the1950s and 60s. Among other things, he writes about that time and place, highlighting the anxieties and cultural issues of the time. But the scope of his life experiences is much more diverse and he now lives in France.
Below is my review of his book No Good Deed
Some reviewers call this book a "coming of age" story. It's considerably more than that, perhaps call it a "what you signed up for when you got there" theme.
Two friends grow up in rural and suburban North Carolina, helping each other survive flawed parenting, the cultural wars of the sixties, and the killings of John and Robert Kennedy and Marin Luther King. Add to that the threat of nuclear mutual assured destruction and the Vietnam war that in various ways tore their world apart. If you grew up during that time, or are seriously curious about that era, this will be a rewarding read. But the real value of the book is in its beautifully written picture of the pricelessness of genuine friendship.
