Promotional Information

'Probably the most chilling and believable first-person story of criminally warped mind I have ever encountered' Stanley Kubrick. Jim Thompson is one of the most respected and acclaimed crime writers: 'The best suspense writer going, bar none' New York Times. 'Jim Thompson is the best suspense writer going, bar none' The New York Times. '[Thompson] captured the spirit of his Age, and the spirit of the 20th Century's latter half: emptiness, a feeling of loss in a land of plenty, of unease amid conformity, of alienation' Stephen King. 'Displaying a pessimistic, satirical and deeply cynical world view, populated by psychopaths, losers and vicious professional criminals, Thompson's lean and mean writing is some of the most innovative and extreme of its era' Adrian Wootton, BFI Companion to Crime. Published alongside Pop.1280, The Getaway and The Grifters - all in a brand new cover style.

About the Author

Jim Thompson was born in Anadarko, Oklahoma. After an itinerant childhood during which his sheriff father was driven from office for embezzlement; and as a roughneck in the Texan oil fields of the 1920s, Thompson became successful as a writer with the pulp fiction houses of the 1950s, writing a dozen of his more enduring novels in just 19 months. He also wrote two screenplays (for the Stanley Kubrick films The Killing and Paths of Glory).

Reviews

I don't read many books twice but Jim Thompson novels - due to their concise, dirty power, their relentless violence and purity - can always draw me in for a second time. Some of the most psychological crime writing ever done. I love James M Cain and Elmore Leonard but Jim Thompson holds a special place in my heart. -- Bruce Springsteen
