    [HR][/HR]James M. Cain is one of the most famous of the hard-boiled fiction writers who came to prominence in the United States during the 1930s and 1940s. Raised and educated in Maryland, Cain served in the military in France during World War I, then worked in Baltimore as a journalist and teacher during the 1920s. Between 1932 and 1947 he lived in southern California, writing essays, short stories, novels and screenplays. His unsentimental crime story The Postman Always Rings Twice (1934) was a popular success, and Cain followed up with more rough-edged hits, including Serenade (1937), Mildred Pierce (1941) and the serialized Double Indemnity (1942). In 1947 he returned to Maryland and continued writing, but it is generally held that his best work was done before World War II.

    Cain was awarded a Grand Master Award in 1970 by the Mystery Writers of America.

    [HR][/HR]
    Synopsis:

    Frank Chambers interrupts his cross country rambling at a diner owned by Nick Papadakis after getting one look at Nick's wife, Cora. That first look conveys everything we need to know about the relationship between men and women in noir fiction, "Except for the shape, she really wasn't any raving beauty, but she had a sulky look to her, and her lips stuck out in a way that made me want to mash them in for her."

    Frank and Cora become lovers and are soon plotting to murder Nick, but find they don't trust one another and "Love, once you get fear in it, turns to hate."

    First published in 1934 and banned in Boston for its explosive mixture of violence and eroticism, The Postman Always Rings Twice is a classic of the roman noir. It established James M. Cain as a major novelist with an unsparing vision of America's bleak underside, and was acknowledged by Albert Camus as the model for The Stranger.
