About the book:

“I never knew a writer who regarded [writing] as anything but a refined form of crucifixion.—James M. Cain


Although Cain was formerly dismissed as merely a hardboiled writer, his finest works—The Postman Always Rings Twice, Mildred Pierce, and Double Indemnity—are now considered enduring classics of American literature.


In this book Roy Hoopes gives as full a picture of the man and his life as will ever be written. The work was awarded an “Edgar by the Mystery Writers of America.
