RARA-AVIS: from alibris

"Get the lowdown on collecting paperback thrillers, hardboiled detective novels sometimes dismissed--incorrectly, it turns out--as "pulp." From Dashiell Hammett to Mickey Spillane, Raymond Chandler to James M. Cain, the great pulp writers created a genre and a worldview that changed the direction of both literature and cinema. Read "From Pulp to Noir," and find out everything you always wanted to know about the dark, violent world of what was arguably the most important movement in twentieth-century U.S. popular culture."
