    Talking About Detective Fiction PDF È Talking About talking download, about epub, detective kindle, fiction kindle, Talking About ebok, Talking About Detective Fiction MOBII'm not sure what audience this book was pitched to but I wasn't it This is no slur on the work or the writer I have an academic interest in detective fiction and a readerly interest in PD James' novels and I was hoping for either deeper personal reflections on her life and writing or a critical analysis of detective fiction as it relates to her work in the style of A S Byatt whose non fiction critical work provides the other half of her thought This was of a gentle meander through the genealogy of detective fiction with none of the depth and footnotes other works have provided on the same subject and insufficient reflection on her own writerly practice to raise it

    Talking About Detective Fiction PDF È Talking About talking download, about epub, detective kindle, fiction kindle, Talking About ebok, Talking About Detective Fiction MOBII'll confess I read this book because I wanted to see what one of my favorite authors had to say about my other favorite authors However this book is not just insight on Agatha Marjorie and Dorothy; PD James actually discusses the processes she used and continues to use to create her wonderful mysteries Yes she talks about Sherlock Father Brown Lord Peter Albert Campion Miss Marple Morse and Hercule Poirot but she also discusses the origins of detective fiction the hard boiled American detective fiction and the future of detective fiction I would highly recommend the book to any detective mystery authorsPD James is an excellent author and even though this is literary criticism and even though she is not the Agatha Christie fan I am and even though she barely discussed Marjorie Allingham at all I really enjoyed this book So whether you want to know how

    Talking About Detective Fiction PDF È Talking About talking download, about epub, detective kindle, fiction kindle, Talking About ebok, Talking About Detective Fiction MOBII usually object to the term 'nice' being applied to a book but in this instance I will make an exception This was a nice and accurate study of the history of the British detective novel written by somebody who is not only highly thought of in the field of detective fiction but most importantly a real fan of the genreI have never read a single novel from the pen of PD James Cover Her Face is on the horizon now but I can see why she is so popular in the detective story market her passion for the subject shines through in this essay and her knowledge is overwhelming to a mere enthusiast such as myself Although I guess it's easy to have so much knowledge to hand at 90 years old having been reading detective fiction from the dawn of The Golden Age that the majority of this book focuses onI think it is telling that I preferred the discussion of hard boiled fiction to the analysis of Christie Marsh Allingham and Sayers but about my tastes than hers As the subject drifts away from the c

    Talking About Detective Fiction PDF È Talking About talking download, about epub, detective kindle, fiction kindle, Talking About ebok, Talking About Detective Fiction MOBII'm sorry to say that this book is as dull as its title I've read almost everything James has written – most recently The Private Patient with the usual Jamesian cast of cultured hyper constipated characters This book is a rather dutiful altogether unnecessary survey of almost exclusively British detective fiction It's Wikipedia with a cream teaWhat I really wanted I realized was her take on her contemporaries – Gossiping About Detective Fiction Surely she's possessed of juicy insights that would satisfy the cravings of those of us who read mysteries by the pile But apparently the Baroness of Holland Park does not permit herself such pleasures and her conversation never ascends beyond the anodyne
