Criminal convictions : errant essays on perpetrators of literary license by Nicolas Freeling( Book )

8 editions published between 1993 and 1994 in English and held by 500 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

For Freeling, the mystery genre embraces multitudinous forms and an astounding variety of practitioners, from great literary stylists to base hacks. As might be expected, he is never at a loss for words nor diffident in his judgments about either. In his own fiction, Freeling has defied every convention, to the delight of audiences worldwide. An original, unexpected, unfailingly rewarding writer, he here gives further delight with these personal, opinionated, thoroughly provocative essays on his predecessors in mysterious excellence. This is a collection for anyone interested in the literature of crime, and indeed in literature tout court - for, as Freeling says, "The nature of crime is also the nature of art."
