    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.

    Patricia Highsmith wrote a short handbook, but I don't recall if it was general advice about writing or specific to noir.
