Louis Armand’s acid noir tale Breakfast at Midnight is a real delight, the kind of book that both embraces and breathes life into the standard tropes associated with the hard-boiled genre. In an upcoming review (forthcoming from Rain Taxi), I describe the novel as “a pinball fever dream, sopping with sweat, booze, and sex, that bathes its confines in an unsettling atmosphere of grime.”

Armand is not only a writer, but also a photographer and painter of some wonderful abstract canvases. Here below are two examples of his work. His website contains multiple galleries, all certainly worth a view.
