NPR on crime fiction

Wisconsin Public Radio airs a full hour discussing contemporary crime fiction. It’s mainly an interview with the best crime fiction blogger, Peter Rozovsky, whose Detectives Beyond Borders is a fabulous read, full of information and sound opinions. The radio show focuses on “noir” — which Peter defines more convincingly than anyone I’ve heard before as fiction in which the hero knows that he’s doomed and heads right for it with a strange kind of acceptance. The discussion touches on the films of Truffaut and the books of Izzo, Khadra, Rankin and…well, me.
