Dashiell Hammett: The Library of America Edition, Hardcover


Here, for the first time in a deluxe collector s box, is the most comprehensive edition of the hard-boiled crime fiction of Dashiell Hammett ever published. ``Complete Novels,`` the first of two volumes gathered here, presents the five groundbreaking books whose gritty, lean prose won admiration from such contemporaries as Stein, Hemingway, and Faulkner: ``Red Harvest,`` ``The Dain Curse,`` ``The Maltese Falcon,`` ``The Glass Key, ,`` and ``The Thin Man.`` In the stories he wrote for ``Black Mask`` and other pulp magazines in the 1920s and 1930s, Hammett used the vernacular adventure tale to register the jarring textures and revved-up cadences of modern America. ``Crime Stories & Other Writings`` presents 24 of these classic tales, along with revealing essays and an early, unfinished version of his novel ``The Thin Man.`` The texts, reprinted here for the first time, are those that appeared originally in the pulps, without the revisions introduced by later editors. An invaluable collection. ``Kirkus Reviews``
