Private: Noir

Recently I read and enjoyed James M. Cain’s The Postman Always Rings Twice, and I’ve wondered which other Cain novels I might track down. There’s help over at The Literary Saloon, where links to reviews of three Cain titles are provided.

Many of Cain’s novels were adapted for the screen, but according to an article published in the Guardian two years ago:

James M Cain, the prolific and talented author of such landmark hard-boiled novels as The Postman Always Rings Twice, Double Indemnity, Mildred Pierce and Serenade, had nothing but contempt for movies and for the bloated industry that produced them.
