    Has anyone written a really good piece/book/etc. on how to write noir? I have been a how-to-write-X junkie my whole life and am trying to think of anything specifically like that. I guess Chandler's famous essay would count, "down these mean streets" etc., though I seem to remember that's more about the P.I. tale than noir per se.

    Just curious for feedback.
