"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.

Review:

"A meticulously researched biography. . . . I've rarely read such a grim account of a writer desperately grinding out work to pay bills. . . . One hopes this careful book will lead to a revival of interest in a writer who not only keeps the palms damp and the pages turning, but whose work rings as true now as it did the day it was written.""--The New York Times"

About the Author:

Roy Hoopes is Director of College Relations, Washington College, Chestertown, Maryland.
