Críticas: Over the last two decades, there has been a flowering in Italian crime fiction. Fascinating new work has been coming out, and crime novels have gained a mass audience for the first time. These novels have often been politically acute and fascinating in terms of their style and their urban settings. But until now no one volume has analysed this trend or put it in historical context. Italian crime fiction fills this gap with aplomb, with a wide-ranging series of highly readable essays written by acknowledged experts in a number of fields. This collection looks into the origins of Italian crime fiction in the 1920s and 1930s, the genius and influence of Giorgio Scerbanenco as well as the work of Eco, Sciascia, Tabucchi and Gadda. Essays also deal with key themes such as the South, women and the city of Milan. Backed up by an annotated bibliography, this is an essential collection for all those interested in this genre, as well as in Italian literature in general and the connections between crime, history, politics and the city. Professor John Foot, UCL There are few people better placed than Giuliana Pieri, Senior Lecturer in Italian and the Visual Arts at Royal Holloway, University of London, to edit this fascinating and insightful analysis of several decades of Italian crime fiction. It is notable (and perhaps regrettable) that, as yet, the remarkable and idiosyncratic talents of this branch of the crime fiction genre have not made the mark that their Scandinavian confreres have. But enthusiasm among non-Italian speaking readers is growing. Pieri and her contributors analyse with intelligence and enthusiasm the political insights and historical contexts freighted into the work of such writers as Sciascia, Eco and (of course) Andrea Camilleri. But along with the better-known names, much light is thrown on the strategies and achievements of writers yet to make their mark outside of Italy. Potential readers, however, should beware - this is a volume that will send you out to purchase all the authors herein, whether you are engaged in academic discipline or just seeking sheer narrative pleasure.
