John Connolly's best known for the Charlie Parker Series.
John Connolly is an Irish writer. He's best known for his series of novels starring private detective Charlie Parker. A Book of Bones (2019) and The Dirty South (2020) are the recent books.The setting of the novel "The Winter Wolf" is prosperous. What inspired you for this mysterious city?
sometimes get accused – particularly by US readers of a more
conservative stripe – of introducing social and political commentary
into my books, which they dislike, mainly because it doesn’t correspond
with their own views. I suppose that, in traveling around the US and
other places, I’ve seen the growth of gated communities, and a belief
system which suggests that we only have obligations to those like us.
Prosperous is the ultimate manifestation of that philosophy: it’s a
wealthy, protected town, in which things work well and everyone is
comfortable, just as long as they adhere to the rules. Those who are
less fortunate have no place there – or perhaps they do have a place,
but it’s not anywhere one might want to be.
