The Long Goodbye
|Billy Wilder's classic film based on James M. Cain's classic novel, Double Indemnity. This is the gold standard of noir in any|
| As part of our celebration of International Crime Fiction month, we bring you Purple Noon, Rene clemont's 1960 version of Patricia Highsmith's novel The Talented Mr. Ripley. This classic of deception and stolen identity differs from the novel more than the 1999 film version but is arguably more complex and interesting. ||Robert Altman gives a very '70s take on the quintessential private eye, Phillip Marlowe. Like Chandler's novels, the film gives us a vivid look at Los Angeles in it's time.|
| August 6 - 6PM|
Devil in a Blue Dress
| August 20|
|Carl Franklin beautifully photograph's Walter Mosely's first Easy Rawlins novel, Devil in a Blue Dress, both an entertaining private eye story and insightful look at race. Don Cheadle gives a career-making performance as Easy's violent sidekick, Mouse.||Director Debra Granik creates a faithful adaptation of the brilliant Daniel Woodrell's novel, Winter's Bone. Possibly the best example of rural crime fiction out there. |
INTERNATIONAL CRIME MONTH
June is International Crime Month! We're celebrating crime fiction writers around the world with a brand new series on the MysteryPeople blog that delves into the authors writing crime fiction around the globe and the publishers here in America who put those books on our shelves.
International Crime Month is a month-long initiative highlighting internationally acclaimed crime fiction authors, editors, critics, and publishers. Four of America’s most influential independent publishers—Grove Atlantic, Akashic Books, Melville House, and Europa Editions—have joined forces to promote one of the most vital and socially significant fiction genres of our time. We're happy to join them!
Look for a special in-store display in MysteryPeople highlighting books from these publishers. Watch the MysteryPeople blog for regular posts throughout the month focusing on international crime fiction.
