Do you like American classic books and films? Are you a noir fan? You cannot miss our next book club! We will discuss the famous novel by James M. Cain The Postman Always Rings Twice. The bestselling sensation – and one of the most outstanding crime novels of the 20th century – was banned in Boston for its explosive mixture of violence and eroticism, and was acknowledged by Albert Camus as the model for The Stranger. It also was the basis for the acclaimed 1946 film.
An amoral young tramp. A beautiful, sullen woman with an inconvenient husband. A problem that has only one grisly solution—a solution that only creates other problems that no one can ever solve. First published in 1934, 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.
