I starting a new book club for 2011. Hard-boiled crime fiction is the focus. Possible names are
- Behind the Eight Ball Book Club
- Mickey Finn Book Club
Dashiell Hammett, Raymond Chandler, Jim Thompson, David Goodis, Charles Williams, Elmore Leonard, and James M. Cain are just some of the authors I will be looking at for book club selections.
The first book with be The Maltese Falcon by Dashiell Hammett. for January 2011. Due to other book club commitments I am going to start out slow and commit to one book a month. 12 hard-boiled crime novels should be a good start.
