Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

An amoral young tramp. A beautiful, sullen woman with an inconvenient husband. A problem that has only one, grisly solution — a solution that only creates other problems that no one can ever solve.

First published in 1934 and banned in Boston for its explosive mixture of violence and eroticism, The Postman Always Rings Twice is a classic of the roman noir. It established James M. Cain as a major novelist with an unsparing vision of America's bleak underside, and was acknowledged by Albert Camus as the model for The Stranger.

Performed by Stanley Tucci

About the Author

James M. Cain, journalist, novelist, and screenwriter, defined hard-boiled fiction with classics like Double Indemnity and The Postman Always Rings Twice. Cain wrote stories about crime, sex, and betrayal. Born in Maryland in 1892, Cain moved to Los Angeles to pursue screenwriting but found success as a novelist. In 1948 he moved back to Maryland, where he continued to write until his death in 1977.
