America Noir: Underground Writers and Filmmakers of the Postwar Era - Cochran, David

Cochran details how ten writers and filmmakers (including Patricia Highsmith, Rod Serling, Ray Bradbury, and Jim Thompson) probed the Cold War's cultural contradictions and indirectly challenged its social pieties: the superiority of American democracy, the benevolence of free enterprise, and the sanctity of the suburban family.
