“I never knew a writer who regarded [writing] as anything but a refined form of crucifixion.”James M. Cain
Although Cain was formerly dismissed as merely a hardboiled writer, his finest worksThe Postman Always Rings Twice, Mildred Pierce, and Double Indemnityare now considered enduring classics of American literature.
In this book Roy Hoopes gives as full a picture of the man and his life as will ever be written. The work was awarded an “Edgar” by the Mystery Writers of America.
