9781933354132: Miami Noir (Akashic Noir)


Brand-new stories by: James W. Hall, Barbara Parker, John Dufresne, Paul Levine, Carolina Garcia-Aguilera, Tom Corcoran, Christine Kling, George Tucker, Kevin Allen, Anthony Dale Gagliano, David Beaty, Vicki Hendricks, John Bond, Preston Allen, Lynne Barrett, and Jeffrey Wehr.

From the introduction by Les Standiford:

The truth is that Miami, though naturally lovely, is a frontier town, perched on the border between the known and the rarely before experienced . . . We are not only on the edge of the continent, we are to this country what New York was in Ellis Island’s heyday, what the West Coast was in the middle of the 20th century. This is where the new arrivals debark these days, and it is no mistake that during the last decade of the last century, commentators as diverse as Joan Didion, David Rieff, and T.D. Allman devoted entire volumes to Miami’s role as the harbinger for America’s future . . . But for now, the novel of crime and punishment is the perfect vehicle to convey the spirit and the timbre of this brawling place to a wider world.

Book Description Akashic Books,U.S., United States, 2006. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 254 x 132 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. For different reasons these stories cultivate a little something special, a radiance, a humanity, even a grace, In the midst of the noir gloom, and thereby set themselves apart. Variety, familiarity, mood and tone, and the occasional gem of a story make Miami Noir a collection to savor. -- Miami Herald For such a sun-stoked place. Miami sure is shady. Shadowy, too. Even at highest noon. Maybe it s the heat. Maybe it s the humidity. And maybe, just maybe, it s our destiny.With echoes of Charles Willeford s Hoke Mosely series, the Miami books of Elmore Leonard, the quirk of Carl Hiaasen, who never met a shady character he didn t wanna write, and Edna Buchanan, who seems to know all the shadows, this batch of dirty deep South Florida fiction might just send you packing.your own heat. -- Sun Post Sixteen new, diverse and highly entertaining mystery stories pack Akashic s latest city-by-city tour of modem noir.This volume is as solid as the coral rock lying beneath the Miami streets. -- Publishers Weekly This well-chosen short story collection isn t Just a thoughtful compilation of work by some of South Florida s best and upcoming writers. Each Miami Noir story also is a window on a different part or Miami-Dade and its melting pot of cultures. -- Sun Sentinel Murder is nothing new in Miami--or any other big city, for that matter. But seldom has it been so entertaining as it is in the 16 short stories Included in Miami Noir. -- Palm Beach Daily News Akashic Books continues its groundbreaking series of original noir anthologies, launched in 2004 with Brooklyn Noir. Each story is set in a distinct neighborhood or location within the city of the book. Brand-new stories by James W. Hall, Barbara Parker, John Dufresne, Paul Levine, Carolina Garcia-Aguilera, Tom Corcoran, Christine Kling, George Tucker, Kevin Allen, Anthony Dale Gagliano, David Beaty, Vicki Hendricks, John Bond, Preston L.
