AuthorP. D. James
PublisherFaber & Faber UK
Publication Date1/10/2010
Editorial ReviewNATIONAL BESTSELLER “She writes so wittily and with such authority that this lucid little book may well join the handful of classic essays on the genre.” — The Globe and Mail “A task she is more than capable of handling. . . . Her writing shows a vast knowledge and abiding love for the genre she describes. . . . Talking About Detective Fiction is fascinating. It’s as rich in characters and literary detail as the novels that have made James famous.” — USA Today “It is P. D. James’s longevity, as well as her serene intelligence, that makes this book especially noteworthy and enjoyable. . . . If you want to extend your own reading, discover new authors or clarify your thoughts, this is an excellent way to do so.” — The Independent “Who better to ask about the reasons for the ever-increasing popularity of crime fiction than one of the genre’s most revered practitioners? . . . James is as clear-eyed as her hero [Adam Dalgliesh]. . . . A pioneer among those mystery writers who make their readers see the world more clearly even as they try to pull the wool over their eyes.” — Telegraph
