Noir Around the World 8/5

Carly Yuenger

On today's show we explore how the literary genre of noir and its global incarnations. From Ireland, to Istanbul, to Delhi the detective, the gritty street scene, and that sense of dred and despair have become part of the local setting.

Let us know who your favorite writers of international noir are by leaving a comment below.

Aha! A chance to recommend more authors Jean, Hirsh and I didn't have time to get to.

Dominique Manotti's Lorraine Connection makes corporate corruption personal. Adrian McKinty's "Dead" trilogy is a thrilling, violent and funny odyssey, and any number of fine crime writers from Northern Ireland are writing must-read novels about the weird afterlife of the Troubles. And expect more recommendations for me in the future!

Thanks to Jean, Dan, Joe for inviting me on the show. It was fun.
