The Crime Wave: Collected Nonfiction (Ace Performer Collection)

The Crime Wave: Collected Nonfiction (Ace Performer Collection) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Though he is celebrated for his fiction, Dashiell Hammett was also a nonfiction writer, and some of those writings are anthologized for the first time in this collection. All the pieces that ran in Hammett's syndicated newspaper column "The Crime Wave" are included, along with additional essays on writing well, politics, good and bad mysteries, effective advertising, and the World War II Battle of the Aleutians. Dozens of illustrations, advertisements, and photographs that have never before appeared in book form are included, along with an introduction for each selection and notes that provide insights into Hammett's craft, the evolution of detective fiction, and American popular culture of the time.

About the Author

Dashiell Hammett was the creator of Sam Spade and the author of The Maltese Falcon and The Thin Man. He was a Pinkerton's detective, a soldier in the U.S. Army during both World Wars, an Academy Award–nominated screenwriter, a political activist, and a prolific short-story writer. Vince Emery is the author of How to Grow Your Business on the Internet and the editor of Lost Stories, a collection of Dashiell Hammett's short stories. He lives near San Francisco.
