It’s often said when it comes to literature, that spinning a good yarn can best be done when one writes about “the other”. The "other" being out of the ordinary human beings grasping by their fingernails at the very fringes of life. Losers, stooges, lowlifes, users, manipulators and narcissists, these are the characters known in literature as “the other”.
Robin Yocum has collected all of these personality types in his novel A Welcome Murder, set against the backdrop of a decaying Ohio steel town. A Welcome Murder outlines the desperation of 5 characters where murder is very likely the only way out of their crushing individual predicaments.
