While my first love was SF, I read widely in YA, urban fantasy, police procedurals,  middle-grade, and non-fiction.

The Thin Man - Dashiell Hammett

Golly these folks are boozers!!!  I wonder if they don't trust the water. If I drank as much as they did, I wouldn't be able to think straight.  Is it an attempt to portray an idealized life of the leisure class or something else?

 

While it's a hall-mark of classic noir, I'm also not particularly enjoying the obsessively male gaze.

 

I do want to fill the Classic Noir square, and it's a short book, so I think I'll keep going a bit longer.  But I've just requested The Best American Noir of the Century - James Ellroy,Otto Penzler from the library as a backup.
