Heaven, My Home Overview

In Heaven, My Home by Attica Locke, first-person narrator Darren Matthews, a Texas Ranger, combs through the land surrounding Caddo Lake in eastern Texas as he searches for nine-year-old Levi King. The personal and political are inextricably linked in Locke's reimagining of noir and hardboiled detective fiction. Hailing from Texas herself, Locke acutely dissects themes of wealth and corruption, anti-Black racism, Confederate history, the spectacle of tourism, and intergenerational trauma.
