9780099461524: Men From Boys

Little is perfect for the men in these seventeen crime stories and nothing is straightforward. The worlds they inhabit are as different as a deprived London housing estate and a rundown jazz joint in Manhattan, but each of them is striving to determine what is right, what will give them dignity, what will earn them self-respect. Some succeed. Others fail.

In this acclaimed collection of stories, John Harvey has gathered together some of the very best names in contemporary crime writing. Together these writers answer what it is to be a father, a son, a man. Authors are: Mark Billingham, Lawrence Block, Michael Connelly, Jeffery Deaver, John Harvey, Reginald Hill. Bill James, Dennis Lehane, Bill Moody, George P. Pelecanos, Peter Robinson, James Sallis, John Straley, Brian Thompson, Don Winslow, Daniel Woodrell, and a novella by Andrew Coburn.

Review:

"Terrific tales." ( Independent on Sunday)

"An exceptional batch of offerings." ( Time Out)

"Bonus points to Harvey as editor for taste, virtuosity and some weird kind of compatibility - spotting which detects kinship between the most dissimilar authors. An original, outstanding collection - readable and rewarding from start to finish." ( Literary Review)
