Reviews

"Boston is a very diverse city, and Boston Noir 2 manages to offer readers a satisfying taste of some of the best classic noir literature the metropolis has to offer. Just like all previous books in this series from Akashic Books, this one is highly recommended."--Verbicide Magazine"In a bloody tribute to this great city, Lehane and company have resurrected several out-of-print classics and pushed the meaning of noir into peculiar placesĀ For those unfamiliar with Greater Boston and its literary heritage, Boston Noir 2: the Classics is a great place to start."--Chicago Center for Literature and Photography"Akashic Books is this edgy press that you may or may not have heard of...Their noir series is sure to please fans of noir, and I recommend picking up one of the many titles, perhaps beginning with Boston Noir 2: The Classics...with contributors like David Foster Wallace, Joyce Carol Oates and Andre Dubus, how can you go wrong with Boston Noir 2: The Classics?"--Sacramento Press
