Edited by Jesper Gulddal, Alistair Rolls, and Stewart King

Liverpool University Press

Liverpool English Texts and Studies LUP

  • Ground-breaking essays that counter the notion that crime fiction, unlike 'literary fiction', is formulaic and does not warrant detailed critical analysis
  • Offers an exciting new account of crime fiction as a genre defined by its violation of the boundaries of the text, the genre and the nation
  • Presents important new readings of some of crime fiction's classic texts
  • Argues that the reframing of crime fiction as literature has important implications for how we read other genres
