Hard liquor

Emily Schultz’s fourth novel aims at being a grimy yet widescreen look at the Prohibition era


Men Walking on Water

Emily Schultz

Knopf Canada

Canada-born, Brooklyn-based Emily Schultz (The Blondes) taps into this urge in her fourth novel, which turns its gimlet eye to Detroit in the 1920s, at the height of Prohibition, as a suspicious car accident has repercussions for an entire community of booze smugglers, their families, and their suppliers.
