RARA-AVIS: "The definitive Gold Medal paperback original"

From: Jay Gertzman ( jgertzma@earthlink.net)
Date: 29 Jun 2006

What specifically makes _Black Wings Has My Angel _ exemplary (of the Gold Medal crime novel)? The hardscrabble or downscale setting? The working class or underclass characters? Their desperation to survive rather than to solidify status? The novel's implict criticism of an economic and social system that condemns people without middle class education and manners to insularity, racism, a need to repond to obstacles with violence? The nature of the crimes committed? The undertone of sexual repression and the untimate liberation of sexual desire from that repression? The power of the femme fatale?
