Twentieth-Century Crime Fiction

Lee Horsley

  • Covers a wide range of twentieth-century material, both British and American, using close analysis of over 40 individual texts to develop a wider argument
  • Combines close attention to different critical concepts with an overview of generic development, using chronologically overlapping chapters to show how successive transformations have their roots in earlier phases of crime writing
  • Analyses the use of crime fiction as a vehicle of socio-political protest, providing a unified framework for understanding transgressive modes of representation and subversive appropriations
