American Noir: the Pocket Essential Guide to US Crime Fiction, Film and TV by Barry Forshaw.


Paperback, 188 pages.


Barry Forshaw is acknowedged as a leading expert on crime fiction and film. In this book he tackles the largest and, some might argue, most impressive body of crime fiction from a single country, the United States, to produce the perfect reader's guide to modern American crime fiction. Every major living American writer is considered, including the giants Harlan Coben, Patricia Cornwell, James Lee Burke, James Ellroy and Sara Paretsky, as well as non-crime writers such as Stephen King, who stray into the genre.
