Crime Novels: American Noir of the 1950s

The Killer Inside Me, Jim Thompson | The Talented Mr. Ripley, Patricia Highsmith | Pick-Up, Charles Willeford | Down There, David Goodis | The Real Cool Killers, Chester Himes

“Beautifully bound and arranged—often following rare first-edition design blueprints—Crime Novels contains some of the best crime writing of the genre’s golden decades. They should give much pleasure to lovers of film noir and readers addicted to original and eclectic writing. And for cineastes, Pick-Up and The Real Cool Killers have yet to be made into films noir. So you’ll have to read the books first.” — Los Angeles Times Book Review
