Private Dicks and Feisty Chicks
Written by Cathy Cole
An entertaining and fast-paced exploration of crime fiction, through the eyes of writer and academic, Cathy Cole. Cathy addresses the reasons why readers of crime fiction find it so addictive and satisfying, and why the conventions of crime fiction lend themselves so perfectly to depicting contemporary social, political and moral issues. Private Dicks and Feisty Chicks examines the experience of reading and writing crime as well as the influence of politics and feminism on the development of crime fiction. Something for every armchair sleuth and mean streeter.
