Cain: The Biography of James M. Cain (2nd edition)


Write The First Customer Review

I never knew a writer who regarded writing] as anything but a refined form of crucifixion.--James M. Cain Although Cain was formerly dismissed as merely a hardboiled writer, his finest works--The Postman Always Rings Twice, Mildred Pierce, and Double Indemnity--are now considered enduring classics of American literature. In this book Roy Hoopes gives as full a picture of the man and his life as will ever be written. The work was awarded an Edgar by the Mystery Writers of America.
