I look forward to reading your review of it.
Earlier this year a terrific article by Hollywood screenwriter turned licensed psychotherapist Dennis Palumbo in the Huffington Post sparked one of my longest-ever blog posts, looking at how crime fiction is perhaps one of the very best literary formats for examining society. You can read Palumbo's article "Through a Glass Darkly: Crime Fiction as a Window on American Culture" here , and my lengthy post, which included some great comments and insights garnered from a variety of authors I'd interviewed in recent times at the time , here.
It's a topic I've returned to in interviews with several authors since, including the likes of James Lee Burke , Michael Connelly , and PD James - it seems to be something that is bubbling away in the minds of many people who write or read crime fiction. After it had sat in my TBR pile for a while I was distracted by the Ngaio Marsh Award and several books I had to review for various interviews, articles, and other commitments , I started reading it this morning, and immediately kicked myself for not getting around to it sooner.
I was hooked within a couple of pages, and I've found myself reading it here and there throughout the day as mini-breaks from work.
