*PK:* Your Parker novels were once called “hard-boiled”, but are now
sometimes called “noir”. Do these two terms mean the same, in your view?
Are they terms you’d use?
*DW:* I think hard-boiled and noir are both a little past their sell-by
date, and both really refer to the post-war 40s. Hard-boiled is what the
vets brought back with them, and noir is the world they found when they
got home. I think hard-boiled is still possible, but noir today is
another word for artsy.
